Irish singer Keith Duffy is embarking on a mammoth 592-mile (952-kilometres) bicycle ride to raise money for charity.
The Boyzone star has donned his sports gear for The Big Red Bike Ride challenge, in which participants cycle across Ireland.
Duffy kicked off the trek over the weekend (09-10Jun12), and completed the first leg of the ride on Monday (11Jun12).
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Stage one of cycle from ballybunnion to Galway complete, Only 140k to go today! Well done all on the Big Red Bike Ride"
Money raised by the challenge will be donated to Irish Autism Action, the Manchester United Foundation, and Hearts & Minds, an autism charity.
