They might be called The Snapping Turtle, Roo Boy and The Hairy Eagle, but this group of elite cyclists takes what they do very seriously. And now’s your chance to help them raise money for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation.
The King’s Men is a unique cycling group which began over 10 years ago. Founder Stuart Verrier, also known as The King, said the group, which includes about 80 members, was made up of great personalities and includes grand dukes, arch dukes, princes, lords, barons, knights and serfs.
“Each member is allocated a specific name, such as The Padawan and The Submarine,” The King said. Non-members are known as “Randoms”.
But while it all sounds like fun and games, the cycling part is no joking manner. And neither is the fund-raising.
In its third year, the charity ride has so far raised almost $38,400 for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation and this year the team is aiming on raising another $20,000.
The King said it is a cause that is close to all the members’ hearts. “Because so many of us have kids of our own, we can relate.”
