A Scots dad is set to ride 3,500km to raise money for Cure Leukaemia after his young daughter was diagnosed with cancer. Allan Dickson, 54, from Newton Mearns, begins The Tour 21 on Friday, June 24, riding 100 miles per day until Sunday, July 17.

It comes after his daughter Liv, 14, was diagnosed with cute lymphoblastic leukaemia in November 2020, when she was just 12.

Allan spoke to Glasgow Live about the stresses of Liv's treatment as well as how proud he is of Liv for coping with the disease.

He also explained his arduous training for the cycling event, which will see him follow the same route as the Tour de France.
