Midlothian Velo Sportif rider Martin Graham completed eight mountain bike trail centres in 17 hours recently, raising £350 for Marie Curie in the process.

Martin’s challenge was to complete the well known seven stanes trail centres, which included Glentress, Innerleithen, Newcastleton, AE Forest, Mabie, Dalbeattie, Kirroughtree and Glentrool.

Martin beat the previous record time of 18 hours and 50 minutes by a staggering one and a half hours.
