A determined cyclist from Maidenhead will be relying on pedal power as he aims to bike more than a thousand miles from Land's End to John O' Groats.
Dad-of-four Pete Clifton will set off on the punishing challenge on Saturday as he attempts to raise £,5000 for Boyne Hill Boys and Girls Football Club.
The Summerleaze Lane club is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and chairman Pete wanted to mark the occasion by doing something special.
"We are having an extra push on fundraising so I thought I would do something to help," said the Belmont Road householder.
"If all goes well it will be the biggest achievement of my life. I will be thrilled to have done it and delighted to raise lots of money to help the club."
The money raised from the ride, which will involve covering up to 100 miles every day for two weeks, will be used to fund new football pitches at the club.
