Scottish mover rides for Macmillan Cancer Support

Mar 03, 2019
Bobby Black, Managing Director of Scottish removals firm Black’s of Brechin, is taking part in this year’s Inverness Etape, a fund-raising cycle event around the iconic roads of Loch Ness held on 28 April, 2019.

Bobby ready for his cycling challengeThe 360° closed-road route around the loch starts and finishes in the Highland capital of Inverness and includes 900m of ascent. There is also a timed King of the Mountain stage, with a 4.8 mile (9 km) climb gaining 380m in height with a gradient at times reaching 12%. 

Bobby will be riding to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity very close to his heart.  Bobby explained, “I lost my mum in June 2010 and for many years she was very supportive of the Macmillan centre at Stracathro Hospital near Brechin. Sadly, my dad has now been diagnosed with oesophagus cancer and is currently undergoing treatment in a bid to extend his life and make him as comfortable as possible.  Unfortunately, he isn't strong enough for surgery and the option agreed was radiotherapy. Right from day-one of the diagnosis I have read the Macmillan booklets and visited the Macmillan website for advice and support and now it is my chance to give something back and raise as much money as I can for this great cause,” said Bobby.
