Clare, who is a novice cyclist compared to Mark, said: "It was just a last minute idea to get some fresh air and exercise. It was lovely to do."

Nurse Clare and Mark, who is a surveyor, have three children and love the outdoors.

They are both members of Running4CF, a local charity that raises funds for Cystic Fibrosis sufferers and whose members meet every Monday evening at Billington Brass Band Club for a run.
