Seven family friends have set off on their bikes from Wales this morning (October 28) on a journey 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. 

Ben's friends Phil Kowbas, Paul Bate, Jesse Bate, Owen Dobson, Toby Allen, Jack Griffin and Harry Griffin are cycling without him after Ben caught Covid-19 last week.

Ben hopes to join his friends for moral support.
