A county company is backing a gruelling charity bike ride effort.

Peter Nash Cars, of Ross-on-Wye, is supplying support vehicles for what organisers bill the Ultimate Charity Bike Ride - two amateur cyclists representing the Samaritans covering almost 1,000 miles in nine days.

Cyclists from Hereford will join John Clements and Steve Thatcher on the final leg of their journey from Aust Services to Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

Anyone wishing to join the sponsored ride on Sunday, or donate should call Hereford Samaritans on 01432 269000.
