GPs' 1,000-mile bike ride

A Hampshire GP cycled from Winchester to Gibraltar as part of a fundraising drive for Cancer Research UK. Dr Tim Frank, a GP in Eastleigh, Hampshire, led a team of around 30 cyclists.

Professor Mark Rickenbach, a GP in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, rode with Dr Frank to the Pyrenees.

The group rode 90 miles or more a day for 15 days, and climbed the equivalent of Mount Everest (29,029ft) and Mount McKinley, Alaska, (20,320ft) combined.

To date, they have raised £63,000 but aim to raise millions over the next few years.
