A CHARITY supporting people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is hoping to raise vital funds by cycling more than 1,000 miles.

Berkshire MS Therapy Centre hopes to collect £10,000 with the fundraiser, which will involve cycling from Monte Carlo to Transylvania without leaving the gym.

Members are being challenged to collectively pedal 1,094 miles during the three-week challenge.

Samantha Harper, fundraising manager, said: "Every year we increase the target and for this year we practically doubled the distance, but our members were not going to fail.

"There is such team spirit and I have no doubt that together our members will get there.

"Our annual challenge is hugely important as it helps us show the world that life does not stop with MS, we may need to adapt, but we will continue."
