It's 6,500 Miles from A to B by Bike
- London-leg of 'modern-day odyssey' for Pimlico Parry

SUPER-CYCLIST Paul Parry pedals through London today as part of his astonishing 6,500 journey from A to B.

To raise money for the Red Cross and Victim Support Westminster, Parry is nearly half way through a ride from A in Norway to Bee in Nebraska, USA. "People are always talking about travelling from A to B - but until now - no one has ever attempted this modern-day odyssey," said Parry, who has already managed 2,500 miles of the trip after travelling through Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium.

Parry, who lives his normal life in Pimlico, has chosen to complete his mission by two-seater tandem bike so he can pick up passengers along the way in a bid to lessen the feared boredom of hours alone in the saddle.

Riding south west out of London today, Parry is bound for Southampton from where he will travel on the Queen Mary 2 liner to New York.
