Veterans to cycle length of Britain via three peaks

A pair of army veterans are preparing to cycle from John O' Groats to Land's End for charity.

Former SAS members Archie Scott and Charlie Cook will be aiming to raise £5,000 for the ex-servicemen's charity Help for Heroes when they put on some cycling clothing and set out on July 30th, the Hereford Times reports.

As well as bidding to cover the distance in 12 days, the pair are also going to take on the highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales - Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon - as they pass them in turn.

Commenting on the decision to swap pedals for trekking poles when each mountain is passed, Archie Scott said: "Not many people have done the three peaks as well as the end-to-end cycle ride at the same time, so we thought we would include it to raise as much money as possible."

The National Three Peaks Challenge involves taking on the three mountains in under 24 hours, with people being driven from mountain to mountain with a chance to rest on the way.
