Mountain cyclists complete charity challenge
A team of six cyclists have successfully completed an impressive mountain cycling challenge after being inspired by their stuntman friend.
The tireless group took on the incredible task of scaling the UK's three highest peaks - Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike - on their way to raising over £15,000 to advance research into motor neurone disease.
Their friend Neil Cunningham was forced to take early retirement from his job as a professional stuntman two years ago when he was diagnosed with the debilitating condition, and has since dedicated his time to improving awareness - something the ambitious cyclists decided to help out with on this ride, despite having to cope with waist-high floods and winds of 70mph along the way.
A wide range of challenging cycling holidays can now be enjoyed by all kinds of people in some of the world's most fascinating locations, with adventure getaways enjoying increasing popularity in recent years.
