Jonathan Mawby, 44, will begin his three-week ride on Friday, May 13, from Altrincham, Greater Manchester, to raise money for Myeloma UK after his mother had been diagnosed with the blood cancer in 2018.
Jonathan, who owns a garage in Knutsford, Cheshire, has spent time holidaying in Aguilas and is a keen amateur cyclist.
His massive cycle will see him climb the equivalent of twice the height of Mount Everest.
Support vehicles will see him joined by his sister Sally Silver and dad Mike.
Jonathan Mawby said: “I’ll be cycling around 80 miles a day. It´s going to be tough.
“I’m raising money for Myeloma UK in memory of my lovely mum, Lee, who died on October 5, 2020.
“She had been diagnosed with myeloma in December 2018.
“Myeloma is currently incurable.
“Treatments can be effective at controlling the disease but as I know from Mum’s experience, they don’t work for all patients.
“My hope is to raise much needed funds to find kinder, less intrusive treatments and ultimately to find a cure.”
