FOUR cyclists from Kinross Cycling Club have raised £4000 for cancer charities wearing nothing more than a flesh coloured skin suit and a fig leaf to hide their modesty!
The team, called ‘Near Naked Men’, took part in an epic 300 mile cycle taking in Maggies Centres in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Kirkcaldy, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness with the aim of raising cash for both Maggie’s and the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign (MCAC).
Led by Angus McCulloch, the group comprised Scott Ruth, Paul Murray and Ross Cowie, wearing the MCAC’s ‘near naked man’ race suits which are said to be, ‘the world’s most eye-catching cycle apparel’!
The idea for the bike ride came from Angus, whose wife Stephanie was diagnosed with breast cancer in the same week that her father died from prostate cancer.
He said: “It has been a tough year and we are not over it yet.
“We have had tremendous help from the Maggie’s centre in Edinburgh.
“The money we have raised will be split evenly between Maggie’s and MCAC which works to promote awareness and reduce embarrasment of male cancers.”
Angus added: “All the members had personal reasons for undertaking the epic ride.
“Most of those taking part are relatively terms new to cycling and none had previously undertaken such a physically demanding challenge.”
