A ROTHERHAM fitness fanatic is off on a 36 hour bike ride to nowhere to raise cash for Children in Need.
Dominic Hurley will climb on a static bike at Asda in Rotherham at 11am today (13) and cycle until the store closes tomorrow (14) at 10pm–and he's expecting to clock up over 500 miles.
"I'm really looking forward to raising as much money as I can, as well as inspiring others.
“I've worked so hard with the trainers at énergie to build up my stamina for this event so fingers crossed I'll make the full 36 hours," said Dominic.
The 36 year old and 2009 winner of Rotherham's Sports Personality of the Year is no stranger to charity challenges, having raised over £37,000 in the past for various causes by cycling twelve hours a day for a week and completing a 24 hour spinathon.
Dominic developed a passion for fundraising after sustaining a severe brain injury in 1994 when he fell from a moped in Cyprus.
Despite him still suffering from memory loss and right side paralysis, he is a spinning coach at énergie Fitness in Parkgate and regularly trains at the gym.
Two members of staff from énergie will also join Dominic for an eight hour spin on Friday, November 20 for Children in Need.
