Simon Windmill, aged 35, decided he wanted to spend 2018 improving his fitness and doing something for a good cause.

He chose Bike 4 Cancer, which provides respite days and short-breaks for families affected by cancer.

He started his challenges by cycling the equivalent of 100 miles on a static bike in Sainsbury’s, in Hill Road, taking him six hours.

His girlfriend, Sarah Hoare, helped by giving out balloon animals and stickers.

Simon will be taking on a 100-mile journey through London in July, and will be on Clevedon Pier on June 23 at 11am, taking on another gruelling six-hour ride on an exercise bike.

He said: “I’ve got a massive sense of pride and achievement to be doing something worthwhile.”
