Steve Evans meets fund-raising cyclist Dan Clifton

His first big attempt was the 160km Bradley Wiggins Challenge in August. Despite it being a "step too far" in his early stages of cycling, he did manage to finish the event spurring him on even further.

Now he is attempting to cycle the length of Britain in a 1,100-mile quest to raise £3,000 for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. Scroll down to hear the full interview.

Both his mum and his uncle have had cancer and have been treated in Clatterbridge.

"Dan is a philanthropist and is always looking for ways to raise money. I look forward to keeping track of his ride and sharing his progress with our listeners." - Steve Evans, Presenter

He has already raised over £1,300 with many events. With help of his girlfriend Jen and her mum Linda, Dan is baking and selling cakes to raise further funds. Linda is also asking for her upcoming 60th birthday party presents to be donations for the cycle ride.

Dan begins his quest on August 28th and hopes to raise more funds along the way.
