Meet Matt Cook who is 32 years old with his dog George, a yellow Labrador who is nearly 6 years old. His intention is to cycle from home in Waterlooville just north of Portsmouth clockwise around the coast of England, Wales and Scotland, some 4000+ miles and he is hoping to cycle around 100 miles a day. Matt’s parents have a motorhome and intend to follow him as his back up, carrying his gear and booking campsites. Naturally George will be with them on this epic trip and to give Matt moral support. He is hoping to complete this challenge in around 6 weeks.

Matt is collecting sponsorship for this ride and all money will be donated to the Barney Fund and supported Labrador Lifeline dogs. If you live anywhere along his route then I am sure he would appreciate a wave of support and to spur him on. Donations would be appreciated and you can do this using the DONATE button on this page.
