Hendy Performance service technician Rob Procter is planning a 1,850 mile cycle challenge in Canada and America – with Hendy Foundation set to benefit from his epic fundraising challenge.

Rob is set to cycle from Vancouver to the Mexican border in June 2022 – taking the scenic coastal roads down the west coast and tackling an average of 80 miles a day on his bike.

Rob, who lives in Romsey and works at Hendy Performance in Eastleigh is no stranger to cycling challenges and is already increasing his daily mileage to ensure he is fully prepared for his American adventure.

He says he chose the west coast as the weather should be better than cycling in the UK and he wanted to tackle something a little different.

“By sticking to the coast as much as possible the scenery will be amazing and I’m looking forward to cycling by myself and my own pace,” said Rob. “I’m looking to average 80 miles a day, but some will be shorter and there are some where I will by cycling 120 miles so that will be a real challenge.”

Rob is being supported in his efforts by Hendy Performance and has set up a fundraising page to raise money for Hendy Foundation.

Hendy Foundation chair Rebecca Hendy said the charity was delighted that Rob is raising money to help a wide range of local causes. “Rob is a real inspiration with the challenge he has set himself and we can’t wait to follow his progress on the ride.”
