Generations on a roll for charity.

THREE generations of the Fenby family are climbing in the saddle to take on a coast-to-coast cycle challenge.

And by coincidence the Fenbys' combined ages (164) add up to the exact number of miles they are travelling!

Currently riding from Walney Island, near Barrow, to Saltburn, are Colin Fenby, 71, son Steven Fenby, 41, grandaughter Bethany Hodgson, 21, and Steven's partner Lisa O'Brian - all from Easington, near Loftus.

Colin's partner Lynn Duncan is in charge of back-up - transport, erecting tents and searching out suitable pubs en-route.

The family is doing the ride in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Research, Parkinson's Research and the James Cook University Hospital Heart Scanner Appeal and has raised more than PS1,000 to date.

Bethany's mum, Linzi Featherstone (nee Hodgson), died of cystic fibrosis in 2011.

Colin said: "My mum died of Parkinsons disease on Christmas Day 2000 so there are direct personal reasons for supporting our chosen charities."
