A group of self-professed ‘fat dads’ from across Derbyshire has completed a cross-country cycle for charity.

The eight-day challenge saw the men pedal from Land’s End in Cornwall to John O’Groats to raise over £40,000 for several Derbyshire-based and national charities, including Ashgate Hospice.

Martin Speed, one of the cyclists, said: “The support from start to finish has been amazing with friends and family coming along the route to support.”
