An optician is doing last minute training preparations as gets ready to tackle the world's longest off-road cycling route to raise cash for charity.

Kerrin Walker, of Arthur Road, Windsor, will take part in the gruelling 2,745 mile Tour Divide self-supporting mountain bike challenge starting on June 8.

The 37-year-old will ride from Banff in Canada to New Mexico over three weeks and hopes to raise more than £2,000.

He will split the cash he is donated between Thames Hospicecare, in Hatch Lane, Windsor, and Vision Aid Overseas.

The franchise owner of Vision Express in Windsor's King Edward Court, said he has been training by doing rides of more than 100 miles, including from Windsor to Nottingham.

The Bike Company, based in Windsor is also supporting Kerrin's efforts.
