Among hundreds taking part in a 102-mile overnight cycle ride there will be one man raising money to help fund a series of community projects in Keynsham.

Mark Penny is joining the Exmouth Exodus on August 17-18, starting from Clifton in Bristol at around 10pm and cycling all the way to Exmouth, which he hopes to reach at around 7am the next day for a well-earned fry-up.

Mark said: “Not only is this a long distance to cover in one go but at night makes things a little more tricky. I will be joined by another 250 riders of all abilities and on a range of bikes so I won’t be alone.”

Mark is a member of not-for-profit community group Transition Keynsham and he hopes to raise hundreds of pounds to help keep its various projects going, including the Plot in the Park, a vegetable patch in Keynsham Memorial Park, the group's Wellsway wildflower patch and the Wombles litter-pickers.

He added: “As we are a community group for the community the more money we can raise the more projects we can run.”
