A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD is doing her bit to tackle climate change by cycling 100 miles over two days.

Audrey Newton wanted to raise some money for the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF UK) after being inspired by Greta Thunberg’s book, which she bought with some birthday money.

Now Audrey is preparing to cycle from her Somerset home to her grandparents in Tupsley to help 'save the planet'.

She will start her mammoth 100-mile cycle, alongside her father, on August 14, completing 50 miles on the first day.

Audrey will be travelling via Cheddar, Yatton, Portishead and over the River Severn M48 bridge to Chepstow where we will stay overnight.

After a good nights sleep and a cooked breakfast she will follow the River Wye and quiet roads as much as possible all the way into Hereford, arriving at her grandparents in Lichfield Avenue, Tupsley, in the early evening.

"She loves cycling and after plenty of talking we decided to do the ride next year," said her mother Lucy.

"However, she was training so well that she decided she wanted to do it this summer.

"Audrey started cycling two years ago and she keeps getting better and better. We cycle a lot as a family and she is particularly keen."

To prepare for the challenge Audrey has been riding 35-mile rides and practicing riding over two days.

She will be supported during the ride by her mum and brother who will be following in a car with spare wheels and essentials.

So far Aubrey has raised over £765 through her GoFundMe page HERE
