Charity riders turn window wheelers

TWO cyclists are set to embark on a month-long ride from Sheffield to Romania, to raise money for children living in Transylvania.

But Calin Gruia and Raul Cazan need to first raise 300 for specialist bike equipment and will be cycling in the window of Henry's Bar in Sheffield city centre tomorrow.

Mr Gruia, 31, said: "We're going to support the cause of sustainable transport and access to education for the children in the Carpathians, because the local council's funds for hiring a driver and a minibus have dried out.

"They have to travel anything between six and 15 miles to take advantage of their fundamental right to education. The funds we raise will be used to purchase bicycles and helmets for 30 pupils who currently have to walk to school."

They will bike through Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary, to reach Transylvania.
