A submariner who lives in Doncaster will be very much on dry land today when he sets off on a three-day endurance cycle ride from London to Paris.

Dave Jewitt, aged 47, from Cantley, took up cycling only four years ago to get fit after spending so much time cooped up in nuclear subs.

Now he is riding 350 miles in the HotChillee Challenge and will be raising at least £700 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, after the disease claimed the life of his brother-in-law, Simon Smith.
