A super cyclist from Northumberland has raised hundreds of pounts for charity by taking on not one, but two cycling challenges.

Morpeth Lion Adrian Barnes entered the London-Surrey 100 mile cycle event, starting in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with the route following the 2012 Olympic Games route into Surrey and back.

Adrian completed the course in six hours 23 minutes and raised £420 which will be split between the Lions charities.

Not content with that, a few weeks later Adrian took part as part of a team doing a two hour cycling stint at Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade.

The event was organised to raise funds for Barnabas Safe and Sound, a Morpeth based charity for youths and the homeless.

The team raised a total of £600 on the day for the charity.

Chris Offord from Morpeth Lions said: “We are waiting to hear of Adrian’s next challenge, but hopefully not for a few months as it is costing them a small fortune in sponsorship monies.”
