A young cyclist from Slinfold has ridden his bike more than 950 miles in just one month.

Lucas Harvey, seven, took on the challenge to raise money for Diabetes UK in support of his mum Chantelle, who is a type one diabetic.

And now the bike-mad lad has completed his epic challenge – a distance the equivalent of Lands End to John O’Groats.

Chantelle, 30, said: “I’m so proud I don’t even know how to actually explain it.

“His stamina amazes me. He just does it so easily.

“I don’t want to brag but I don’t know any children that could do that.”

Lucas hit his 950 mile goal with days to spare - but then decided to continue his challenge right to the end of April.

He ended up clocking an incredible 1,019 miles.

Chantelle added: “I’m even prouder in the sense that he still wants to finish – he wants to finish the month.”

Lucas has raised more than £1,200 so far. To donate see https://cycle.diabetes. org.uk/fundraisin­g/ lucas2022 Have you done something amazing you’d like to share with our readers? Email us at ct.news@jpimedia.co.uk
