An avid bike rider endured a 10-hour static cycle to raise hundreds of pounds for a North Somerset charity.
Darryl Galbraith completed 135 miles on a turbo trainer push bike in Weston-super-Mare High Street.
The challenge was in aid of Wraxall-based charity Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), with £524 raised from collection buckets.
Mike Allen, who organised the ride, said: “Darryl and I went to the hospice and we saw first-hand what members of staff go through on a day-to-day basis.
“People were very interested and supportive of Darryl and we are thankful for their generosity.
“I subbed in because Darryl got cramp a couple of times, but he soldiered through.”
Darryl will take part in a 205-mile cycle from CHSW in St Austell to Wraxall in July.
