Kris cycles to aid charities

A CYCLIST from the Lothians has set off on an epic bike ride across Europe to raise funds for cancer charities.

Kris Lindsay is taking part in the 1000-mile journey in memory of a friend’s grandmother, who recently lost her battle with the illness.

The 27-year-old and three pals from Wales set off on the ten-day adventure on Saturday from Turin, Italy, from where they will head for Cardiff, pedalling through five countries, 50 towns and five cities in the process.
