World tour duo complete first 3,000 miles
Two cyclists from Devon have ridden more than 3,000 miles on the European leg of their world trip which is supporting a charity in Cornwall.
Tom and Sharon Bridgman set off from Nodkapp, in Norway, on June 4 and plan to cycle through 32 countries before ending their trip in Alaska.
They have nicknamed the tour North2North Cycle Tour because of the route they will follow.
The duo, members of Okehampton Cycling Cub, are now in Poland en route to the Middle East. From there the trip will take them through North Africa, to South Africa, South America, Central America, the USA and Canada and into Alaska.

Sharon said: "Before we left Tim spent months researching what kit to take using other cycle tourers' blogs and websites. We've picked up so many invaluable tips from them. We do have some family and friends coming to visit us en route so we can send back things we no longer need, such as our thermals, as we head towards Africa."
This month the couple passed their 3,000th mile, having climbed 38,065 metres to that point.
Tom and Sharon are raising awareness and money for disaster relief charity ShelterBox, based in Helston. It provides emergency shelter for people affected by disasters around the world.
