Newton Stewart teenager Ben White sets off tomorrow on and epic cycle run from Land’s End to John O’ Groats to raise money for the Nepal earthquake victims through the Disasters Emergency Committee charity.

Eighteen-year-old Ben hopes to complete the 814-mile trip solo and unsupported. The brave teenager who relishes a challenge, expects to take ten days to pedal from one end of the country to the other averaging 95 miles per day.

Ben said: “I an really looking forward to it. I have been out training five days a week to prepare for this cycling around 30 miles a day.”
