Mad motorcyclist to run 26-mile race in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support dressed in full bike leathers
A MOTORCYCLIST is to run this year's London Marathon dressed in full bike leathers.
Mike Taylor, 35, is doing the sweaty stunt to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity which supported his mother when she underwent treatment for breast cancer several years ago.
When asked what sort of response he gets from his outfit when he's out on a training run, Mr Taylor said: "I get some funny looks from most people."
Good luck with the run Mike, but please, don't stick your leathers on eBay afterwards.
