THEY cycled 170 miles and managed to raise more than £15,000 for a charity that helps children in the Portsmouth area.

As previously reported in The News, Pompey legend Linvoy Primus launched the fifth Pedal for Primus event.

It raises money for the charity Faith and Football.

In all 34 cyclists lined up at Fratton Park to take part in the challenge, which saw them go from the home of Pompey to Reading’s ground, before going to Aldershot and then cycling back to Portsmouth.

Linvoy said: ‘It was a brilliant event and the weather held out for us, which was good.

‘We’ve collected £15,000 so far, but we still have more coming in.

‘Apart from the usual punctures and a few issues, there were no other problems.

‘I’d like to thank all the cyclists who took part and Spirit Circuits in Waterlooville for sponsoring us.’

Each night food and accommodation was provided, so that all money raised went to the charity. See faithandfootball.org.uk.
