Sons follow in Bath dad's footsteps . . . and cycle tracks
The saying "like father like son" is certainly true for the Harding family.
Veteran fundraiser George Harding is well known for taking part in gruelling challenges to support Macmillan Cancer Support.
And now the 75-year-old's sons have proved they are chips off the old block by joining him in his latest adventures.
Accompanied by his eldest son Stephen, Mr Harding cycled 1,000 miles from London to Nice, via Paris and Geneva, in 15 days.

Together they raised £5,000 for the cancer charity.
Not to be outdone, youngest son Paul will be joining his father on the Escape to Africa mountain bike challenge, covering around 400 miles across mixed terrain, starting on October 20.
So far the pair have raised £7,500 in sponsorship.
Mr Harding, from Weston, said: "I feel incredibly proud and fortunate to be sharing these challenges with my sons. The whole involvement is very special, in particular because it is for such a wonderful charity."
Mr Harding raises money for Macmillan in memory of his wife of 48 years, Maureen, who died from cancer in 2008.
He has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro twice, hiked along the Great Wall of China, walked across the Sahara and run the London Marathon, raising a total of £122,000 for the cancer charity.
