Cyclist Julian Dagger, who is approaching his half-century, is hoping to ride from John O’Groats to Lands End this month in memory of his late mother and a dear friend.

Mr Dagger, 49, of The Butts, Westbury, has always wanted to attempt the epic cycle, and was inspired by the loss of family friend Derek New last year to a stroke.
