Fundraiser Ash Broughton had his legs waxed ahead of a cycle from the west coast of Ireland to the east coast of England.
Harshida Patel of Sheeda’s Beauty Clinic and Alec Walton of Archway House are pictured with Ash as he prepares to face the pain.
Ash, together with David Newcombe, Rob Gomez and Michael Lee, are due to set off on Saturday in aid of Cancer Research UK and the Air Ambulance.
The 580-mile ride will take them from the western-most tip of County Kerry in Ireland to Lowestoft in England.
