Martin Torbett is a self-confessed crazy 64 year old cyclist who in the last 6 years has already taken part in 3 charity events with his bicycle, clocking up a "meagre" 1100Km in 15 days.

However, this challenge is a big one- some 6700 km, which he hopes to complete in just 3 months.

Martin shall be cycling round the coast of the UK while the crew of Tikka sail around the coast.

Martin and Tikka will meet at pre-arranged points on the coast where he’ll grab a welcome nights rest on board.

Martin aims to cycle approximately 90km each day.

Martin has chosen to embark on this challenge to highlight our work at Action for Children and raise urgently needed funds.
