Hero Ride, a charity race organised by Help for Heroes, will be arriving in London later today, following a week full of money-raising efforts across the country.

Over 1,000 cyclists will meet in Blackheath, having completed their own individual charity bike rides, to cycle the final ten miles to the finish line at Horse Guards Parade.
