Final preparations being made for a Derry man's charity cycle to Malin Head tomorrow on a classic Chopper bike

Challenge being undertaken to raise money for Foyle Search and Rescue

Derry man to cycle all the way to Malin Head on a classic Chopper bike

Jay will make the journey on a Chopper bike.

A Derry man is to cycle from Muff to Malin Head tomorrow on a vintage chopper bike to raise money for a local charity.

Jay Doherty will make the 45-kilometre journey on the classic bike, setting off from Muff at 9.30am.

All the money he raises will be donated to Foyle Search and Rescue, whose members Jay described as 'heroes'.

He has already managed to raise £2,500.

Jay said he's looking forward to the challenge.

Chopper bikes were hugely popular in the 1970s and 1980s and were seen as being among the coolest bikes to have.

However, we don't know how comfortable they might be on the journey from Muff to Malin Head!
