A man who sustained life changing injuries has been hand cycling the coastline of England.
Robert Groves, who is part paralysed after an accident in 2007, has set himself 27 days to finish the 2,500 mile challenge which will see him travel around the coastline.
He will arrive in Great Yarmouth on Thursday before his ride down to the finish line in London this Friday to greet the prime minister at 10 Downing Street.
Mr Groves has set himself an average distance of 95 miles per day.
Mr Groves, who set off from Brighton, said: 'My aim is to demonstrate what disabled cyclists can do, raise awareness of hand cycling as a sport and raise awareness of our dying oceans.'
