Three Choral Scholars are cycling 1,200 miles to Norway to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

After training hard for months, Feargal, Dave, and Phil set off from the Back Gates of King's last Wednesday. They are cycling around 80 miles a day on a route that takes them through the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Sweden to the Royal Palace in Oslo. They are currently in Germany, and plan to reach Oslo on 4 September.

The Choir members were inspired to donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust by their friend and former Choral Scholar Alex Stobbs, who suffers from the disease.

See the Kings On Bikes Money Giving page for more details and how to donate. You can also follow the progress of the cyclists on Twitter and Tumblr.

We wish them all the best for the journey!

Update

Feargal, Dave, and Phil reached the Royal Palace in Oslo on Wednesday 4 September. Congratulations to them on a fantastic achievement! See their Tumblr page for photos, and the Kings On Bikes Money Giving page for information on donating.
