Chris Miller, from Whitchurch, cycled unsupported to Ben Nevis and back, as well as climbing the mountain.
He did this in order to help raise funds for a new Youth Centre at Whitchurch, and by the time he got back some £7,000 had already been raised, towards a target of some £200,000.
Sponsors of the project hope to buy a disused chapel in Test Road, Whitchurch and to convert it into a Youth Centre.
Many congratulations to Chris for this heroic adventure, which he completed in 2 weeks. There was a tremendous reception at Whitchurch Town Hall when he returned, and he looked remarkably relaxed after his ordeal. On some days, he spent 10 and a half hours cycling.
Chris is enjoying a gap year, before going to Portsmouth University next year. He plans a cycle tour of Europe, but will be looking for a job in Basingstoke to help raise the funds.
Welcoming Chris back in Whitchurch were his mother and father, and sister Leanne who gave him unwaivering support throughout his journey. A barbecue was held in the White Hart, where there was a raffle to raise further funds for the yough centre.
