SACs Luke Smith, Peter Blakeman, Luke Cooper, Grant Smith, Corporal Rob Cooke, pictured, and colleagues SACs Baz Sutherland, David Stephenson and Alex Haycock will be pedalling on static bikes in the Guildhall Shopping Centre on Tuesday.

The intrepid airmen, based at RAF’s Tactical Supply Wing at Beaconside, aim to pedal one kilometre for every serviceperson lost during the Second Gulf War and conflict in Afghanistan – more than 1,000km.

They will be be pedalling around 130km each and hope to complete their challenge, which starts at 9am, by 5pm.

Funds raised will go to the RAF Association, who will also be attending on the day.
