He’s not yet ten but young Ronnie Gwynne has already cycled single-handed from Stourbridge to just past Weston super Mare.

Good job mum and dad are in the house to keep an eye on him on his 277-mile fundraising challenge to Land’s End.

Ronnie, of course, is doing it from the front room on dad’s exercise bike (what a good Christmas present that turned out to be before the year of lockdowns began).

Footballer Ronnie, a member of the Forest Falcons team, was missing his sport and his exercise in lockdown so decided he needed a challenge.

And off he zoomed for his virtual cycle ride, with the added bonus that any sponsorship would go to Russells Hall hospital.

He set himself the target a target of £100 but has already got £560 – and there are still 170 or so miles to go!

“We’re so proud of him,’ said mum Lucy, a nurse, and dad Richard, a PCSO.

They live at Dorchester Road in Pedmore, with son Stanley, four, and Iris, 6, while Ronnie goes to Ham Dingle School – when not locked down.
