Rugby man Keith Floyd (pictured above in yellow sleeves) has joined seven former colleagues in a charity cycle ride from London to Brighton.

The 52-year-old was riding in memory of a friend, Graham Dunn, who died of cancer last year.

The adventure raised £1,300 for Dimbleby Cancer Care.

The team took five hours and 25 minutes to pedal the journey, reaching speeds of 37mph and climbing a total of 1,041 metres before reaching their end destination of Brighton Pier.

Graham was the leader of their team while working on an IT project at the Home Office.

Keith said: “We all enjoyed it all so much that we are already planning a more ambitious event next year when we tackle the 140-mile coast to coast challenge. We are sure Graham would have been proud of our efforts.”
