The teenage brothers who cycled from John o’ Groats to Land’s End are set to take on an even bigger pedal-powered challenge for charity.

Sam and Ollie Turner, known as the Brothers on Bikes, announced they want to ride from Santander to Sidmouth in August this year.

The Sidmouth College students, along with a team including their father, local police sergeant Andy Turner, raised £26,000 for cancer charities after being inspired by the death of their cycling-mad uncle to go the length of Britain in 10 days. But now the brothers are taking their bikes to the continent to ride from Spain back to Britain, and are looking for sponsors to help cover costs of the challenge so all the proceeds can go to Sidmouth Hospiscare.

Sam and Ollie need to secure travel to Santander and from Roscoff to Plymouth, as well as accommodation for the team in Spain and France.

Any businesses wishing to help them should visit the Brothers on Bikes Facebook page.
