Nonnas owner goes cycle-mad for charity - VIDEO

Cycle-mad restaurateur Gian Bohan is gearing up for an Easter Sunday to remember - and one he’ll probably want to forget!

Nonnas owner Gian will be embarking on a non-stop 24-hour cycling challenge for charity.

Gian will mount his stationary bike on the terrace of the Ecclesall Road restaurant at 2pm on April 8 and won’t stop pedalling until 2pm the next day.

“Yes I do realise it’s a crazy challenge,” said the 45-year-old, who run Nonnas with business partner Maurizio Mori.

“To be honest, it was one of those brief moments of madness where you’re sitting with your mates and you think ‘yeah, that’s a great idea’ - but then the idea stuck somehow!

“Now I’ve got tons of sponsors and so I thought I’d better start preparing!”

Gian, a member of La Squadra cycling club, is raising money for this year’s Dallaglio Flintoff Cycle Slam, when he’ll join sporting legends Lawrence Dallaglio and Freddie Flintoff on their charity bike ride across Europe.

Gian will join the pair when they pedal the length of Italy - covering a total of 1,290km over 10 days from April 28.
