U's On The Road

22 April 2015

Cyclists on their way to Fleetwood.

And Robbie finished by saying: "So far, every game we've cycled to, we've got a positive result, starting with Southend back in 2006, so hopefully it'll be the same this time around."

The U's go to Fleetwood knowing that three points will keep the teams above them in reach ahead of a home double to conclude the 2014/15 campaign.

"He and Lea Finch started this some time ago, so we want to keep it going and raise some important funds."

He said: "I do these rides because I've been lucky enough to dodge that bullet with my children and grandchildren, but Stuart hasn't been as lucky.

The ride is just the latest in a series of club activities in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust and Robbie, soon to become a grandparent for a second time, is keen to keep the club's connection with this fantastic charity.

"I think having done it before will help, you know the first day is the hardest, but then you get to enjoy it and know you've got a good day's cycling ahead."

"Ahead of the ride to Carlisle, I ran to every home game so I was a fair bit fitter, but it may be more a question of determination this time.

Reflecting on the ride ahead, Robbie said: "It's going to be a bit more difficult this year, as I've not kept as fit and I'm a bit older, so it may be a bit tougher.

There will be overnight stops at Peterborough, Matlock and Preston in the next few days before arriving at Fleetwood.

Richard and Robbie Cowling, along with fans Aide House, Sam Wolton and Stuart Begg set off for Lancashire just before 10am on Wednesday morning as they raise more money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Colchester United board members and supporters are on the road to Fleetwood, having set off on a charity cycle ride that will cover some 290 miles.
