TWO brothers from Fareham coach firm Lucketts Travel swapped horse power for pedal power to raise money for African orphans.

Ian and Steve Luckett have taken part in a charity bike ride from London to Hayling Island, raising £1,100 so far for the HOPEHIV charity.

The pair joined 59 other cyclists in the ride from Richmond Park in London to Langstone Bridge at Hayling Island.

The challenging route took cyclists through Richmond Park, Esher and Cobham and then Guildford, Haslemere and Buriton before passing through Rowlands Castle and Havant and then finishing on Hayling Island.

Ian said: ‘HOPEHIV is a fantastic charity that does great work with orphans in Africa and really works. It’s not often you’ll catch me doing physical exercise so this really was no mean feat for me but we did it!’

Steve added: ‘The training was gruelling as was the ride itself but we made it and we’re very proud. I feel like I need a knee replacement now but it’s a small price to pay.’
