The cyclists will break up their journey staying in Hawthorn Pubs along the way and have already raised £11,500 for Chasing the Stigma.

Arndale Centre manager Craig Allen said: "It was once again a pleasure to host the start of this charity bike ride and we wish all the cyclists the best of luck and a safe journey."
