A cyclist who is riding around Britain and Ireland, visiting all 237 lifeboat stations and raising funds for the RNLI, yesterday stopped off in Scarborough.

Steven McAllister’s epic journey brought him to the resort – and his 117th station.

Yesterday’s ride began in Whitby and ended in Bridlington.

He started the tour at Penlee, near Land’s End in Cornwall, in September.

By October 21, he had visited every station up to Silloth, in Cumbria.

After taking the winter off, Steven, of Bristol, recommenced his journey at Silloth and has since visited every station in mainland Scotland and the Scottish islands.

By the time he has finished, he will have cycled about 7,500 miles. So far, he has cycled 3,000 miles and raised more than £2,000.

He hopes to complete his trek around the British islands, including the Channel Islands and Isle of Man, this year. He also hopes to have at least made a start on Ireland.

Steven got the bug when his mother-in-law, an RNLI fundraiser, died and he did a sponsored ride in her memory.
