Local man to cycle the equivalent of Everest

Rob Moneta raising money for Cruse Bereavement Care

A cyclist is heading up Everest tomorrow - or at least covering its vertical distance on a Manx road.

Rob Moneta will be pedaling up and down Ballakillpheric in Colby, non stop, until he has done 8,848 metres.

He's raising money for Cruse Bereavement Care.

Speaking on Mandate this morning, Rob said he'd quite fancied taking on the challenge - and the charity seemed an ideal cause to support.
