James Withall and Dan Wallis, who own the Easton-in-Gordano-based property business, 3sixty Real Estate, will take part in the event next month.

James, aged 32 of Ham Green, and Dan, aged 29 of Portishead, have been in training for the event since January and have been put through their paces by 24-year-old personal trainer Ben Winter, from Nailsea.

So far, James has already lost weight and Dan has managed to greatly improve his endurance.

The cycle ride, which will run from April 15-16, will begin in London and finish in Exeter, with a stop in Easton-in-Gordano.

The men are hoping to raise £1,000 for the charity, which supports more than 21,000 disabled people in the UK, giving them a more independent way of life.
