TEENAGER Will Caygill has no plans to take it easy when he finishes school in a couple of weeks time - instead, he will be cycling the 170 mile Way of the Roses Coast to Coast route.

13 year old Will, a pupil at Ermysted’s Grammar School, will start the ride on Saturday, July 20, the day after he finishes for the summer.

And, he has set himself the target of raising £2,000 for the men’s mental health charity the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) and children’s cancer charity, Candlelighters, and is already well on his way to achieving it.

Although a keen sportsman, he plays plays rugby at Wharfedale Rugby Club and cricket at Skipton Cricket Club, he has not done much road biking which will add to the challenge.

Will hopes to complete the route, from Morecambe to Bridlington, in three days, staying the first night at his home in Rylstone. He will be accompanied by his dad on the route.

“I will be definitely be ready for my bed after the challenging steep climb out of Settle up the cobbles onto High Hill Lane at the end of day,” he said. To support Will in his ride, go to his facebook page @willscharitybikeride
