A Leighton Buzzard man is to cycle 1,400 miles around the west coast of Ireland to raise funds for his church.

Stuart Blofeld, a veteran of endurance sports, will be fundraising for the Church of the Good Shepherd at Sandhills during the trek on June 17-24, and his cycle has no saddle!

Stuart, pictured finishing the Western States 100-mile run, said: “I’ll be riding for up to 20 hours and covering 200 miles per day whilst getting no more than two hours sleep a night if I’m lucky. It will be a spectacular journey and test me both physically and mentally to - and potentially beyond - my limits. I really don’t know if I can do it.”
