Officer cadets from RAF College Cranwell will be in a spin on Sunday, May 4, when they attempt to cover 500,000 metres on static bikes at ASDA superstore in Grantham.

The six cadets, from C Squadron, Initial Officer Training Course 35, will work up a sweat when they start their mammoth cycle ride in aid of the RAF Benevolent Fund and ASDA’s nominated charity Tickled Pink for Breast Cancer.

Last year, nearly 50,000 men and women were diagnosed with breast cancer and the team will cycle 10 metres for every one of them.

Off Cdt Andy Ewing said: “We’ve been training hard for the last few weeks and are confident we’ll cover the distance without much trouble. We’re also supporting two great causes - the RAF Benevolent Fund which is a charity close to all RAF Service personnel and there are many of us who know someone, a family member, a friend or a work colleague, who suffers with breast cancer.

“We hope shoppers in Grantham will come along to ASDA to give us as much encouragement as possible and to donate to these two worthy charities.”

The cadets will begin their challenge at 10am and hope to reach their ‘destination’ by 5pm.
