Grandmother Mavis Paterson has become the oldest person to cycle the length of Britain, after notching up 960 miles in 23 days – at the grand age of 81.
Mrs Paterson, who lives near Stranraer in Dumfries and Galloway, set out on May 30 from Land’s End and reached John O’Groats on Saturday.
Mrs Paterson, who is in urgent need of replacement hips and knees, told ITV News: ”If you have a dream, go and do it. It’s not too hard.”
