Injured marine Mark Ormrod sets out on cycle trip
War hero Mark Ormrod has been notching up the miles
on a gruelling 3,000-mile cycle challenge.
The triple amputee left Plymouth on Saturday morning, cheered on by a gaggle of well-wishers.
He and the rest of the ‘Tour de Forces’ team, who are raising cash for four military charities, had already reached Hampshire last night.

Mark was serving with the Royal Marines when he was seriously injured by a Taliban landmine on Christmas Eve 2007.
He was originally told he would never walk again after losing both legs and his right hand.
But the married father-of-one cycled an inspirational 25 miles yesterday as part of the relay-style challenge.
The four-strong team are running and cycling around the entire British coast in relay.
Mark is using a custom-made £2,000 cycle designed so he can propel it by hand.
The Tour de Forces challenge is raising money for the Royal Marines Association, the Royal British Legion, the Semper FI Fund and the British Limbless Ex-Servicemen’s Association.
