Brick characters helped to launch a charity scheme at Legoland Windsor to get cycle-shy people on their bikes.
The Deputy Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr James Evans, is calling for sponsors as he cycles to as many of his official duties as possible and is encouraging Royal Borough homeowners to do the same.
Mileage of his journeys will be recorded and all money raised will be donated to the Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Richard Kellaway's, chosen charities.
These include the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service and Longridge Activity Centre.
Cllr Evans said: "These are worthy causes to get on your bike for. As a corporate parent it's important to show that I go the extra mile for young people."
"Most of my journeys are within a few miles and the borough is a nice place to ride around so get on your bike and you might surprise yourself."
Legoland played host to the launch after partnering with the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service.
