Eight family friends have completed a 244-mile bike ride from Wales to Wisbech in a bid to create more happy memories for their children. 

Ben and Sarah Dodkin are determined to make incredible memories with their three sons Finley, Arthur and Harrison and not let Battens Disease take over their lives. 

Phil Kowbas, Paul Bate, Jesse Bate, Owen Dobson, Toby Allen, Jack Griffin and Harry Griffin started the cycle on Thursday October 28 without Ben after he was still isolating from Covid-19

“Ben managed to get there to join the lads in their last day which made us all very happy,” said Sarah.
