A courageous Cranleigh teenager has raised over 3,000 by cycling the length of Great Britain in just 15 days.
Sixteen-year-old Bradley Skillicorn completed the 1,000 mile route between Lands End and John OGroats in August.
Bradley, of Southwood Chase, rode his bike between the famous landmarks to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, completing in a cycle time of 83 and a half hours and climbing a total of 48,000 feet.
During the 15 day trek, Bradley and his family, who were there every step of the way, stayed in some unusual places including wooden wigwams, a cell in St Briavel's castle and Hamilton Race Course.
Bradley has so far raised 3,480 for the charity and thanks his local community for their support.
To train for this mammoth task, Bradley enlisted the help of his local leisure complex, Cranleigh Golf & Country Club.
