Fundraiser invites you to cycle with him.

CYCLIST Graham Brain will be pedalling a road safety message when he embarks on a fundraising tour across Britain.

The 62 year-old, from Llancarfan in the Vale of Glamorgan, will be setting off on a 1,500-mile cycle from John O'Groats to Land's End on May 20, calling at 11 extreme geographical points along the way.

He will cycle 50 miles every day over 35 days in aid of Brake, the road safety charity.

Graham is looking for keen volunteers to hop on their bikes and join him on part of the tour or to help the cause by sponsoring this ambitious challenge.

During the trip he will pass through locations such as Dunnet Head, the most northerly point in the UK; Whalley, the most central point; Holme Fen, the lowest point, and he will even climb up Ben Nevis, the highest point in the UK.

Graham said: "When you consider the shocking number of people that are killed and injured on our roads, we need to do as much as we can to reduce casualties."
