Tandem pair’s amazing feat


AS charity cycle rides go, it has certainly raised the bar.

Two riders have just pedalled from Land’s End to Whitstable in under 24 hours – on a 70-year-old tandem.

Luke Huggins, 34, and Nick Green, 44, arrived back in the town to be met by family and friends at the end of an epic journey which they described as the hardest mental and physical challenge of their lives. Luke – an ex-profession­al cycle racer – said he had never had a tougher ride.

The pair completed the 357-mile trek, only with brief stops, in a time of 23 hours and 40 minutes. “Never again” was the verdict. They hope they will raise £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support UK.
