Beating Bowel Cancer in Bum Shorts

Mark Flannagan, CEO of Beating Bowel Cancer, has plucked up the courage to wear bum shorts for Crown to Gown and Ride London, taking place through the summer months.
Starting this weekend, Mark will be wearing these special shorts for the Crown to Gown event, a one day ride from Windsor to Oxford. Mark is planning on completing the return trip on the bike to train his legs for the 100 miles of Ride London, which will be privy to Mark’s enhanced rear towards the end of July!
On the topic of the shorts, Mark explained to Scimitar that the “Beating Bowel Cancer bum shorts aren’t exactly ideal cycling gear. They may provide a little extra padding on top of the lycra, but I do worry about the chafing! It can get hot and sweaty!”
“I am worried about is causing accidents and even causing offence. But, bowel cancer awareness is vital if we are to save lives. I hope more will have their eyes opened when they see my bum on the road.”
