A Welwyn Garden City dad who had part of his leg amputated 18 months ago is set for an epic 50 mile cycle at the weekend.
Kevin Brennan, 50, will be flanked by friends as he heads to the Olympic Park in east London on Saturday.
He has already been pledged around £600 for two charities close to his heart – the YMCA and Help for Heroes.
Former football coach Kevin has lived at the YMCA hostel in Peartree Lane, Welwyn Garden City, for the last six months, after he became homeless.
He had his lower left leg amputated 18 months ago, after suffering nearly 30 years of discomfort following a serious road accident.
Kevin told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “This is the furthest I’ve ever cycled, but I’m raring to go.”
