A group of scouts from Epping plan to cycle 96 miles on an exercise bicycle
An Epping scout group plan to cycle 96 miles on an exercise bike ahead of Monday’s Tour de France.
The 10 to 14-year-old boys from the 1st Theydon Garnon Scout Group will be pedalling 15 minutes each to replicate Stage 3 of the French cycling festival.
The group aim to pedal the route in a similar time to the world’s greatest cyclists at the Epping Town Show on Sunday.
Group chairman Trevor King said: “The boys have had no training and we plan to cycle around 20 to 25 miles an hour.
“If anyone would like to join in and do a cycling stint they are welcome to, we hope to get about 16 people cycling.”
