Staff and students from Sheffield University will team up to cycle across the country and raise money for hearing research.
Participants will take on a 969-mile cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats in nine days.
A spokesman said: “More than 10 million people in the UK have some level of hearing loss. It’s a major health issue that cannot be cured.”
The team has raised £15,500 so far.
