Record-breaking cyclist Mark Beaumont is urging people to join him as he rides from Argyll to Aberdeen to raise money for charity.
The athlete and broadcaster wants 80 cycling enthusiasts to join him on his 240-mile-long trip on September 22.
Last year, Beaumont cycled around the world in 80 days and is looking for volunteers to join him on his latest adventure.
When all 80 cyclists have crossed the line, collectively they will have pedalled the equivalent of Mark’s journey – around the world – in a single day.
The challenge will begin at 4am in Argyll before the weary cyclists cross the finish line in Aberdeen that evening.
Beaumont said: “This stunning route from Argyll to Aberdeen was my last 16-hour training ride before I set out on the world challenge and it holds fond memories – but it is very long and very hilly, so I’ll be impressed by everyone who signs up for this epic day of endurance.
“Thanks to everyone who gets involved and I look forward to riding with you.”
Participants have been asked to raise a minimum of £240, with the goal of raising £80,000 overall.
All money raised will go to the STV Children’s Appeal, which supports children and young people throughout Scotland affected by poverty.
