It's bon voyage to adventurous trio.

AN ADVENTUROUS trio are pedalling to Paris in less than three days to raise money for people with disabilities.

Anil Farmah, Dale Jackson and Graham Robinson, who all work for the Accord Housing Group, in West Bromwich, are hoping to raise more than pounds 1,000 for the company's charity of the year - Dogs for the Disabled.

Starting in Kent on Saturday, September 3, the intrepid cyclists will cruise through the French countryside taking in the sights of Chartwell House and Amiens Cathedral before arriving at their final destination, the Palace of Versailles.

Dogs for the Disabled is a pioneering charity that trains assistance dogs for children and adults with physical disabilities.

Anil said: "It's a fantastic opportunity to raise money for a charity that really does change lives."

The cyclists will also raise pounds 750 for the British Heart Foundation, which organised the London to Paris ride.
