Cycle insurance may have been invested in by three teenagers who have taken part in a 250-mile charity ride.
Joshua Smallwood, Will Kiely and William Robinson told the Bridport News how they decided to complete the challenge to raise money for sick and disabled children.
The trio set off from London and pedalled to Paris, where they completed their journey at the Tour de France finish line.
All the money raised by the cyclists will go towards the national charity Caudwell Children, with the teens having so far raised £1,000.
Trudi Beswick, chief executive of Caudwell Children, said: "This truly is a tall challenge for anyone to complete, so we are absolutely thrilled the boys have chosen to support Caudwell Children."
The charity provides specialist equipment for disabled youngsters, including powerchairs, specialised buggies, sensory equipment, therapy tricycles and specialised car seats.
In addition, the organisation arranges innovative and pioneering therapy programmes.
