It is the second time that he has been combating the deadly disease, getting his treatment at the Sir Bobby Robson Centre at the hospice. The recurrence of the untreatable cancer was noticed in the month of July last year.
It is being said that Barry would be starting his ride with six of his close friends at 9am on August 11. They would also visit his home village of Craster where, as per their belief, they would reach the next day by 3pm.
“I’m being treated at the Bobby Robson Centre and it’s a massive difference to the first time I had cancer. I just wanted to give something back”, said Barry.
