MIKE TOMLINSON is no stranger to fantastic adventures for good causes.
A decade ago he and his wife Jane embarked on an exhausting 4,200 mile cycle ride across America.
Now Mike has set off to cycle more than 3,000 miles from the UK to Brazil on the Ride to Rio in memory of Jane.
The challenge marks the 10th anniversary of Jane’s remarkable Ride Across America, which was to be her final challenge before her untimely death from cancer aged just 43.
Mike hopes his trek will inspire others just as Jane’s adventures inspired people a decade ago. Good luck, Mike.
