A WORCESTER woman will took on a gruelling 205 mile cycle ride from Weston Super Mare to Southend.

Louisa Summer, 49, completed the challenge last week, taking five days to reach the end point.

Miss Summer, who lives near Worcester Shrub Hill Station, did the challenge for the National Autistic Society, beating her target of £700.

Miss Summer has Aspergers Syndrome and wants to help other people who have problems with autism.

She has so far raised around £1,000.

She said: "My charity challenge ride went smoothly from start to finish and I am so overwhelmed with all the support I had along the way from various people who donated or cycled with me.

"Even those tough hills I managed and when Southend on Sea was within touching distance I punched the air with delight and joy.

"It was so great to achieve what I did and along the route I loads of help and support to keep me on track."

This is the fourth charity cycle she has taken on after last year cycling from Dover to Brighton piers.

Previously she has travelled from Worcester to Weston-Super-Mare and vice versa the following year.
