The manager of Bideford Tesco will be cycling 480 miles to raise money for charity next month.

Phil Langdon will cycle from his home in Exeter, to work in Bideford and back, every day for a week.

Totalling 480 miles, Phil will start on September 18, and will cycle every day bar one, with his final ride out on September 23.

During his rides, he will be raising money for North Devon Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Phil said: "I am hoping on the last day my colleagues will join me for at least some of the final leg of my Tour de North Devon."

The event will be part of the build up to the fundraising Wine Man's Bluff event at The Big Sheep on Saturday, October 7.

There a panel will attempt to deceive the audience as they take on a variety of wine tasting.

There will also be a charity auction, raising money for North Devon Hospice.

Phil added: "Tesco Bideford are proud to sponsor this charity event and provide all the wine and food for the supper.

"We are looking forward to raising money for North Devon Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Care, two charities close to my heart."
