Chris Darke and Michael Stevenson will cover 100 miles per day on their journey to John O’Groats.

Two vets are cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats in the name of charity.

Chris Darke, of Brookfield Veterinary Practice in Hereford, and Michael Stevenson, of AAS Veterinary Services in Gloucester, are part of a group of six cyclists weaving their way across Great Britain, covering 100 miles per day for 10 days.

Having set off yesterday (28 July), Mr Darke said the ride was “going well so far”.

Feeling good

Speaking en-route, he said: “Surprisingly, we are feeling reasonably fit. We have just stopped for a break in Dartmoor and the sun is out for once – it has been quite wet and horrible so far.

“Getting through Cornwall was quite an effort, it was very hilly and difficult to get a rhythm, but, weirdly, going through Dartmoor was easier because the roads are better.”

The challenge – Mr Darke’s idea – will raise funds for the MS Society, as one of the participant’s wives has the condition, as does one of Mr Darke’s colleagues.
