A group of cyclists, riding in memory of Welsh cricketer Tom Maynard, have arrived at the Oval cricket ground in London this afternoon, after a 150-mile journey from Cardiff.
They set off from the SWALEC Stadium, home of Tom's former club Glamorgan, yesterday. Their arrival at the Oval, home of his last club, Surrey, precedes a Clydesdale Bank 40 match between the two counties this afternoon.
The proceeds from the match, as well as the ride, will go towards the Tom Maynard Trust. He was 23, when he died after going onto a London underground line in June. An inquest into his death has been opened and adjourned.
Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff tells David Wood why he's getting involved in the 160-mile bike ride to raise money for the Tom Maynard Trust.
"What happened with Tom rocked everyone within the cricket world" he says.
"This is such a fantastic cause. I just wanted to show my support for Matthew and the Maynard family."
"The Trust has been set up raising money to help kids - lads, girls - get involved with cricket, whether it's buying kit, or going on tours or giving bursaries".
"The one thing that's going to be spurring everyone on is that we're doing it in Tom's memory and that we're doing it for the Trust."

Having followed them for a while they're averaging about 15 mph (therefore so am I). Only to overtake them and film them passing me again.
