Three friends are taking on a 'real challenge' by cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats to raise as much money for charity as possible.
Aaron Stephens will be cycling the 900 miles in eight days with two friends from his childhood home of Salisbury.
Aaron, who is the sign writer and fairground artist for Carters Steam Fair, has experience in the saddle with a number of cycling holidays under his belt. But this will be his hardest ride yet.
Fundraising for the Teenage Cancer Trust, the 29-year-old is training hard.
He said: "I just think it's a great charity. It's a dreadful time to be struck with a disease.
"I have been training for months, it's going to be a hell of a challenge, with nearly 100 miles of cycling a day. We do a lot of cycling but we wanted to do a real challenge and something that just wasn't three guys on a holiday."
The Grove Park resident will be getting on his bike at Land's End on August 14 and is hoping to reach John O'Groats on August 22.
