A Cambridgeshire crew commander has raised more than £2,000 cycling 100 miles.

Burwell firefighter Martin Claydon completed the Ride London 100 to raise funds for The Fire Fighters Charity.

The event on July 31 saw some 20,000 riders cycle the route, part of the 2012 Olympic legacy, which started at the Olympic Park in Stratford and finished on The Mall outside Buckingham Palace.

Martin completed the ride in 8hrs 11mins, which included pit stops and hold ups for accidents and his actual ride time was 6hrs 46mins.

He said: “It was an incredible experience. Everyone was friendly, chatting to one another and cheering each other along the route. There were some real hairy moments and some pretty bad accidents but I was just grateful I wasn’t involved in any of them.

“I would like to thank everyone who has supported me and donated, especially Manchetts, which has been very generous to support my efforts.”
