Tredworth cycling hero Jamie McDonald sets a new world record
CYCLING hero Jamie McDonald has smashed the world record for the longest-ever static bike ride.
His home has been a gazebo at Gloucester Quays for the past 11 days while he pedalled like a demon in a bid to shatter the existing mark of 225 hours on an exercise bike.
He hopped into the saddle after riding back to Gloucester from Bangkok and has been surviving on just 90 minutes' sleep a day.
It's all been in aid of the Pied Piper Appeal, which he has raised in excess of £18,000 for.
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).

The money will be used to refurbish the School Room and Play Room at the Children's Centre in Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
Jamie, 26, from Tredworth, beat the record at about 4.45pm yesterday.
His dad Donald said: "It's absolutely phenomenal, I can't believe it's happened. There isn't a word big enough to describe how I'm feeling."
