Both men came up with the idea whilst looking for a challenge which would allow them to share their interest in physical endurance, teamwork and of course, conducting events in support of good causes.

Charles said: “We are well aware of the sacrifices made by both serving individuals and their families. This is an excellent opportunity to both raise awareness of The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, through a challenging cycle, but also to give back to a charity which continually supports us, as part of the Naval Service.”

The cycle will take the pair through some of the UK’s most scenic, but challenging cycling terrain, passing Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor, the Wye Valley, Lake District and Scotland’s famous Glencoe and Loch Ness.
