Surrey's Professional Cricket Manager Chris Adams and brother David, Managing Director and Chairman of Pro4Sport, are getting ready to embark on an 868-mile, 15-day bike ride visiting all 18 first-class counties in October.

Supported by KIA, the two former professional cricketers are aiming to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma research which is a charity close to their heart - their father was diagnosed with Peripheral T-cell lymphoma attached to the liver last year and is currently undergoing treatment.

Chris (left of the three in the photo on the right) and David (far right) will set off from Durham and arrive at The Kia Oval, home of Surrey, 15 days later, and are looking forward to being joined on the ride by a number of celebrities, sponsors and cricketers.
