A group of friends and bikers from Suffolk are set for a "daunting" challenge of visiting the four corners of the UK in an estimated 36 hours.

Ian Charlesworth, Chris Tebbit, Robert McDonald and Ethan and John Stenner are going to visit the most northerly, southerly, easterly and westerly points of the UK, with just fuel and rest breaks in between.

They will be starting their 1,500-mile journey at John O'Groats in Scotland, then head to St David's on the Welsh coast.

They will then travel south to Land's End in Cornwall, before riding the length of the country to complete their journey in Lowestoft.

Ian and Ethan are colleagues at Reiten Motorrad in Glemsford, with John, who is Ethan's dad, and Chris and Robert being friends.

Ian, 47 and from Stowmarket, said: "It's certainly daunting but going to be an experience and something special to share together.

"It's a 29-hour ride according to Google Maps, but that's without any stops and our plan is to rest for a quarter of an hour every time we fill up.

"It's important to top ourselves up, not just in terms of petrol, but also in terms of coffee and chocolate.

"We're not going to do anything silly and we plan to stay safe.

"If we need to stop and sleep, then that's what we'll do.

"It's going to be long and tiring but we want to raise money for a great cause."

The five men are raising money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

Ian continued: "We wanted to do something for a local charity rather than a national one.

"With EACH, the money is more tangible and we're safe in the knowledge that our donation will directly help and benefit children, young people and families within our community."

Their journey is set to begin at the break of dawn on April 29, and you can support them by clicking here.
