What are you doing with your Jubilee weekend? Some of us might be at a festival, or at a street party, or just using the time off to recuperate. For Jeremy Daubeny and his friend Lottie, it is a weekend of final checks before an epic bike ride.

Starting on Monday 6 June, the pair of University of Exeter students will set out on a charity cycle from their homes to Greece. It is all in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity and the Motor Neurone Disease Association, the two conditions cruelly depriving Daubeny of his father and mother, respectively.
