A CYCLING enthusiast has taken on a gruelling challenge of completing one of the stages of this year’s Tour de France.

Matt Doran, from Lawford, took on Stage 3 of the 2014 race from Cambridge to London for charity.

The tough 155km route was undertaken by Matt and 200 of his colleagues at Deutsche Bank and their friends and family.

They were completing the challenge for Malaria No More UK and the Rainbow Trust children’s charity.

Matt, 40, said: “It was great – a long challenge definitely."

Mr Doran is helping to raise money towards Deutsche Bank’s £300,000 target. To donate visit justgiving.com/matt-doran1.
