Pair cycle 900 miles for disabled children’s centre

Two men have raised almost £3,000 for a Henley day centre after cycling the length of Great Britain.

Calum Miller and Ronnie Dickie travelled more than 950 miles in nine days as they cycled from Land’s End to John O’Groats in June.

The TV producer and airline pilot were raising money for the Chiltern Centre in Greys Road, which offers respite care to disabled children and young adults.

They set off from Land’s End on Wednesday, June 4 and cycled through Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, Rannoch Moor and Glen Coe in the Scottish Highlands before arriving at John O’Groats on Thursday, June 12.

The men spent up to 12 hours a day on their bikes during the challenge, staying at bed and breakfasts or friends’ sofas at night.
