A TRIO of charity cyclists from North Dorset are preparing to embark on a European adventure.

Jeremy Gibson, Myles Wheaton-Green and Luke Graham will be pedalling from North Dorset to southern Spain over two weeks, covering around 120 miles a day to raise funds for Canine Partners and Help for Heroes.

They will leave from Hazelbury Bryan on June 8 and catch the ferry to Cherbourg from Poole before cycling down through France to Murcia in Spain.

Ahead of the ride the trio will be holding events at the Co-operative store in Sturminster Newton to raise funds for Canine Partners and at the Blandford Leisure Centre for Help for Heroes.
