A group of pals are taking on a 135-mile cycling challenge to remember the founder of a popular Sheffield café.

Mat Frolish, aged 35, and 36-year-old Carl Walshaw are riding coast-to-coast from Whitehaven in Cumbria to Sunderland in the North-East in just three days along with 12 friends in aid of Sheffield’s Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

Mat’s mum Lynne, who owned Lynne’s Pantry on Surrey Street in the city centre and its sister café on Glossop Road, died two years ago after fighting skin cancer and a brain tumour.

The ride has been named ‘The Big L’ in her memory – visit to sponsor the riders.
