Gary Perriton is now halfway through his gruelling 650-mile solo cycling challenge to help raise funds for Launchpad and raise awareness of homeless veterans.

Gary from Llangollen in Wales, set off from Chepstow in South Wales last Monday (18 October) and has cycled along the Welsh coastline via Brigend, Carmarthen, St Davids via Temby & Pembroke, Aberaeron, Barmouth and Abersoch.

He set off on week two this morning from Abersock and will continue heading northbound to Caernarfon via Aberaeron, Holyhead, Menai, Abergele and is expected to finish in Chester this Friday.

He is also halfway to reaching his fundraising target of £2,000. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far!
