Deafness Research UK advisor, Dr Bob Carlyon, set to cycle 54 miles for the charity!
Bob Carlyon leads a group of researchers working to develop and improve devices such as cochlear implants and hearing aids in Cambridge. Deafness Research UK has provided critical funds towards these projects and is currently funding a PhD studentship supervised by Bob. In addition, Bob is one of the expert advisors that make up our Research Advisory Panel, working closely with the charity and seeing on a daily basis the importance of the work we do and the difference our funding can make to medical research and developments.
I have never done anything like this before,' said Bob. I have been cycling the two miles to work on the flat streets in Cambridge so I suppose it will be the same; just 52 miles further with hills.
I have joined a local cycling club to add to my training but I won't be riding a super bike or shaving my legs to make myself faster, nor will I be wearing a big bunny outfit,' says Bob. All I really want to do is finish the bike ride in reasonably good shape and raise as much money as I can for research into deafness.
Anyone wishing to support Bob with his fundraising efforts and research can visit his Just Giving page: Donate To Bob
Or alternatively text AATQ65 followed by the amount eg £10 to 70070
We would like to thank Bob very much for taking on this challenge to raise money for the charity and hope he has a successful ride!
