Three work colleagues have completed a 945-mile journey on road bikes from John O'Groats to Lands End to raise money for charity.

Marcus Gent, Tony Green and Robin Smith of financial services firm Friends Life put on their cycling clothing and took on the challenge to raise money for the company's chosen charity, Macmillan.

The ride began in the Scottish village on July 3rd and was completed on July 16th when the tired but successful riders reached the end of the Cornish peninsula, raising £5,000 along the way.

Tony Green said: "It was a fantastic experience and it really is a great way to see and appreciate the breathtaking scenery. Hopefully one day soon my legs will stop hurting!"

People keen to take up cycling may be interesting in initiatives such as the Pedal Peak District programme, which encourages people to get in the saddle and enjoy the national park on two wheels.

Its upcoming events include the Hassop Holiday Mondays cycling training events on the Monsal trail near Hassop Village through the school holidays.
