Inspired Living - a charity formed by local people to raise £1 million for Cancer Research and to inspire ordinary men and women to adopt healthier lifestyles - organised a cycle ride from Winchester to Gilbratar, for the committed; and from Winchester to Portsmouth for those who bicycle for fun.
"Many congratulations to Andrew Gibson and his team for masterminding this. The Winchester to Portsmouth route covered 33 miles of beautiful local countryside, which those who normally go on the M3 will miss. Then, for the really serious, some 22 people signed up to continue the journey from Winchester to Gilbratar, a 1,250 mile cycle ride taking 2 weeks".
Sir George started the fun ride at 9.30am, thanking those who were helping to raise substantial funds for Cancer Research.
