Two local lads hope to raise hundreds of pounds for charity when they embark on a 900-mile cycle ride.

Pete Livingstone and Ted Marsh, both from Weston-super-Mare, will cycle from Cornwall’s Land’s End to John O’Groats, in Scotland, starting on Thursday.

The pair hope to complete 110 miles a day and aim to finish the ride in just eight days.

They will raise money for Brain Tumour Research, a charity which is close to both of their hearts.

Pete, aged 35, will be riding for his friend’s daughter Mia, aged 10, who was diagnosed with a tumour when she was six years old and had to undergo major brain surgery.

Ted, aged 35, lost his dad to a brain tumour 11 years ago after a seven-year battle.

They will pass through Somerset and cycle along the Strawberry Line during the second day of their trip.
