Newton Aycliffe charity cyclist Anthony Cox completed his challenge of riding more than 300 miles in under 24 hours for charity.
In memory of Mark Bulman, a Newtonian who passed away from cancer at the age of 21, the 23-year-old took part in the fundraising event for Teenage Cancer Trust along with 300 other cyclists.
Anthony completed the route, all 311 miles of it, in 22 hours and eight minutes, and has so far raised £1,450.
“It’s something I’ll never forget,” said Anthony.
“I’m not sure if I will ever achieve something like this again, but I am sure that if you put your mind to something and work hard enough, then most things really are possible!”
