On the 20th of August, Robert Abbey (a familiar figure on The Duchess door) will be cycling from John O' Groats the Lands End and then back to York. A distance of 1363.6 miles – that’s an average of 97.5 miles per day.

All unsupported carrying all is his own gear on a bike, all money raised over the trip will be going to The Prostate Cancer Charity which Robert got involved with, due to a family member having prostate cancer.

The next trip that he's planning is from Goteborg, Sweden going to Nordkapp then back down the west coast of Norway to Kristiansand.

In order to raise awareness and money for The Prostate Cancer Charity, Robert is putting on a show featuring some of York's best rock/metal bands; With One Last Breath, RSJ, theFALLEN, After Your Betrayal.
