Islander, Ian Gregory’s 194 mile cycle course in the hills of Mallorca is well underway, kicking off his year of fundraising for Prostate Cancer UK.

Ian is attempting the Mallorca 312 2015 route and has been tweeting photos along the way (see his Twitter feed).

He set out from Platja De Muro at 4.30am (UK time), and is expected to finish some 15 hours and almost 20,000ft of climbing later at around 7.30pm (UK time tonight).

Against the odds
Twenty years ago Ian was diagnosed Fibromyalgia, a chronic pain disorder, eight damaged discs in his spine, Arthritis and Tempro-mandibular dysfunction disorder.

Despite this, he cycled over 3,000 miles last year and plans to push his target to a whopping 10,000 miles in 2017.
