A PAIR of intrepid cyclists are to take on the length of Britain from today (Saturday).
Kevin Mills, of Linkfield, WGC, and Chris George will pedal some 1,000 miles from Land's End to John O'Groats.
Their marathon challenge will raise money for Old Hatfield-based Willow Foundation, which provides special days for seriously ill 16 to 40-year-olds.
Kevin, on the right in our picture, a 46-year-old dad-of-two, said they hoped to complete the epic adventure in just 13 days.
