Six Salisbury FC fans are on their way to the match against Bideford match already, despite kick off not being until 3.00pm tomorrow (Saturday 22nd April)!

Charlie's Cycling Circus are a charity group, raising money for Children With Cancer UK.

CCC rides in the memory of the late, brave young boy, Charlie Ranger.

They set off from the Ray Mac (pictured here) at 7.00am this morning (Friday 21st April) for the massive 140 mile bike ride that will take them all the way to Devon.

The aim is to do 100 miles today and 40 miles before the game on Saturday.

Thom Belk, Ross Martin, John Harper and Stuart Cannell will once again be taking on the massive ride for the team, having cycled to Chester for Salisbury City FC's last game in the 2013/14 season.

This year they are joined by newbies Liam Hegarty and Claire Bennett.

All the riders pay their own costs for the trip with all money donated to the cause going directly to charity.

Thom and Stuart are looking forward to the ride but kind of hoped it might have been a shorter journey!

They've raised over £1200 so far and hope that they can go above and beyond that total to give as much to Children With Cancer UK.
