Lancashire man preparing for unique 750 mile challenge

Andy Nuttall, from Little Hoole near Preston, is embarking on a mammoth 750 mile race to raise money for charity.

And if that doesn't sound tough enough - he's doing it on an elliptical bike, which is basically a cross trainer with wheels.

The environment engineer, who works at BAE Systems in Warton, is going to cycle from Paris to Brest in France and back. He wants to do that journey in 90 hours.

Andy is fundraising for the For Crohns charity.
