A man who has worked for the past five years at Everything Everywhere (formerly Orange) in Aztec West has set off on a 10,000km charity cycle ride from London to New Delhi.

Srinivasa Alluri, 38, is the founder and President of the Manavata charity, which aims to create and promote a healthy, happy and harmonious world.

Mr Alluri, who previously lived in Orchard Gate, Bradley Stoke, started the non-profit, non-religious, charity 20 years ago, with the aim of supporting humanitarian projects, like caring for under privileged children, empowering individuals to live independently and promoting environmentally friendly initiatives.

The challenge will take him through 13 countries (UK, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India) and he hopes to complete the marathon journey in 100 days.

The ride started from London on 25th June and Mr Alluri hopes to reach New Delhi by 13th October. He will be accompanied by other riders for various sections of the route but no other participant will complete the full journey.

According to the Cycling for Humanity blog, Mr Alluri has now reached Venningen (Germany), after one week in the saddle.

The aim is to raise £100,000 for the charity. Donations may be made via the Cycling for Humanity page at JustGiving.
