jog newSixteen year old Matthew Kosinski and his dad have completed the 870 mile cycle from Lands End to John O’Groats in aid of Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

Matt began training at the beginning of the year and as soon as his G.C.S.E’s were finished at the end of June, the challenge began.

The pair set themselves a target of completing the challenge in 100 hours and after travelling an average speed of 15.4 mph, ascending 39,310 feet of hills and pedalling for a total of 54 hours, they reached their destination four hours after their target time (104 hours). What a fantastic achievement!

Together they raised a total of £1,609 which has been gratefully received. You can read all about their journey by visiting their website:
