Firefighters to bike three mountains in 24 hours
Four Lincolnshire firefighters have got a tall order on their hands.
A team from Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue plan to cycle three of the UK’s largest mountains – in less than 24 hours.
Tim Edwards, Andy Moore, Adam Orr and Pete Spaczynski from Lincoln North Fire Station will tackle more than 3000m in height on their bikes.
They will be cycling up mountain Helvellyn in England, Snowdon in Wales and Ben Nevis in Scotland.

They plan to complete it in 24 hours, on Friday 30 August.
The team will have volunteers behind them to drive them between locations.
Tim Edwards, watch manager, said: “Two years ago we did a 26 mile sponsored hike which raised over £1,000 for charity.
“I wanted to do something again this year and some of my colleagues are keen cyclists, so the challenge evolved into three peaks, on mountain bikes.
“This year, we are raising money for two charities: The Fire Fighters Charity, which is close to all of our hearts as firefighters; and CLIC Sargent which helps children and young people with cancer.”
