A determined dad has cycled a staggering 200 miles while riding his eight-year-old daughter’s tiny pink bike.
Over six days, Wesley Hamnett pedaled from Glasgow, Scotland to Manchester, England on a £20 ($26) bike with 12-inch wheels.
The dad-of-two had wanted to raise funds for various charities and hospitals which were close to his heart after he lost his granddad to cancer last year.
He’d originally planned to cycle 1,250 miles from Russia to his home in Lancashire. But due to the pandemic, he was forced to backpedal and turn to the drawing board.
He decided he would cycle from Glasgow to Manchester while riding a comically small bike his two young daughters learned to ride on “as a laugh.”
After a grueling cycle which included a six-hour long stretch and eight busted tyres, the cargo handler managed to drag the 12-inch wheels to his home near Manchester on September 21.
