A long-distance cyclist from Inverness has taken a day off so his bike can be repaired.

Alasdair Fraser is currently hoping to cycle the 1,000 mile route between Gdansk in Poland and The Gellions pub in Inverness to help the Ukrainian appeal.

At the end of the day on Monday, he had almost reached the German border and stopped at Świnoujście.

He took a second day off today to complete the repair before heading to Germany tomorrow.

Speaking this morning, he said: “I had to take a second day off on the bike to do a repair.

“I discovered a loose ray this morning and I’m told they can quickly start leaving when that happens.”

He said he aimed to cover great distances across Germany over the next three days.

So far he has raised £1333 on his goal of £1500.
