TWO Malvern teachers arrived home to a hero’s welcome after completing their Land’s End to John o’ Groats bike ride.

Jenny Davis and Jacqui Ferrett travelled 1,099.98 miles – including a cycle from Penzance to Land's Ends at the start – and a total of 56,954 feet of climbing.

Davis said: “This was always going to be an amazing challenge and every day offered something to marvel at or feel proud about.

“I have been trying to describe this journey, but words do not seem to do it justice - it was simply incredible!

“I would also like to thank again all those who have sponsored us so far."

Meanwhile, two Malvern Joggers competed in the Bugatti 10k hosted by Almost Athletes in the Gloucestershire AAA's series.

The route was a mixture of scenic quiet country roads and was an undulating course, with Andrew Brown the first Jogger home in 47minutes, 36 seconds and Chris Barker finishing in one hour, four minutes and eight seconds.

Malvern Triathlon Club member Abi Senior completed the Cotswold Aquabike event, consisting of a 1,500 metre open water swim and a 36km bike ride, in 1.39.35 to become the fifth place female.
