Cycling the River Rhine for Charity

l r Ben Reinhardt   Jim Forkin

Two local men are training hard for a gruelling cycle event.  Ben Reinhardt (pictured on the left) and Jim Forkin (on the right), from Crewe and Willaston respectively, are spending September this year cycling the length of the River Rhine - a total journey of 860 miles.

They plan to start their journey at the source of the Rhine as it rises in the Swiss Alps at Lake Toma, and over three weeks will follow the river as it flows through Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, France to its mouth into the North Sea at the Hoek van Holland in the Netherlands.

All proceeds will go to the charity Bloodwise (formerly known as Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research).

Ben is a committee member of Bloodwise (South Cheshire Branch), and Jim is a fund-raiser. They have been friends for nearly 50 years.
