When the event was launched last year at Fareham Shopping Centre, the staff surpassed the 145 miles by cycling 200 miles.

They spoke to more than 100 young people about mental health. It is due to this success that it is happening again on August 9.

Hampshire CAMHS will be completing the event in Totton precinct on August 11 between 9.15am and 3pm.
