Long-distance cyclist Jason Webb, from Melksham, managed to complete his epic national charity ride with eight hours to spare.
The Cooper Tires storeman did the 881-mile return trip from London to Edinburgh in 108 hours, raising more than £800 for learning disability charity Self Unlimited.
He set off from London on July 28, and, after sleeping for eight hours in Scotland, set off south, arriving in the capital within his target time.
He said: “It was tough going, but the weather was good. I got back from London in the early hours of Friday and was back on the bike the weekend after.”
