Year 9 pupil Lochlan will be using pedal power to raise money for his local RSPCA. 

Lochlan and his dad will cycle ‘Coast to Coast’ -137 miles from Whitehaven to Sunderland on 12 May. 

Lochlan, a regular cyclist, admits it’s a huge challenge for him. 

“I have been cycling for around 10 years but this will be the furthest I have cycled,” said Lochlan. 

“It’s a big ride for me and it’s a course a lot of cyclists do as it's the shortest coast to coast. It will go through Cumbria, passing through the Lake District and to Teeside. It will be very hilly but we have been training, doing around 70km on Sundays, we usually go around the Guild Wheel. 

“We are doing the course over two days and will be staying in youth hostels in Penrith and Rookhope overnight. It will be really exciting and there will be nice views! 

“I wanted to do this for the RSPCA as our local one is based near my dad’s house in Fulwood and they are always fundraising.

“I have two cats with my mum and two dogs with my dad so I love animals. I wanted to raise £250 but have already passed that.”

Head of Maths, Mr Kenrick, will also be cycling the Coast to Coast route next month along with five of his friends.  

Setting off on 28 May, the men will complete the course over three days whilst raising money to support their local hospice, Queenscourt in Southport.

Mr Kenrick apologises in advance if you see him in his Lycra during his training to and from school!
