A Chatteris businessman pedalled the 54 miles from London to Brighton to raise almost £1,500 for a cancer charity.

Simon Wicks, of E1E10 Ltd, was one of more than 3,000 cyclists who took part in the event in aid of bike4cancer.

Bike 4 Cancer was set up by a group of keen cyclists who have all lost a family member or close friend to cancer.

The charity provides respite days and short-breaks for families affected by cancer - some of which are cycling related.

In total, the event raised more than £1million for good causes.
