POMPEY legend Linvoy Primus led a group of cycling fundraisers who set off on a 170-mile route for charity today.

In all 34 cyclists lined up in Fratton Park to take part in the fifth Pedal for Primus challenge.

The fundraisers left the home of Portsmouth City Football Club and are heading on to Reading’s ground then Aldershot’s.

Then they will head back to Portsmouth where they are expected to arrive at around 3pm on Sunday.

The trip raises money for the Faith and Football charity.

Linvoy Primus, who helped set up the cause, was taking part again this year.

He said: ‘I’m nervous and excited, but the sun is shining on us and it’s always good fun.

‘I know what to expect and it can get quite tough, but there’s always a good feeling in the camp and we all support each other.’

Cyclists can choose whether they go to Aldershot, or turn around after reaching Reading.

Each night food and accommodation will be provided, so that all money raised in sponsorship goes to the charity.

Around £15,000 is raised each year, which goes towards the charity’s community and education programmes.
