What have you done lately?
A seven-year-old has put the whole adult population of the UK to shame by cycling 90 miles in the Coast to Coast challenge.
Noah Elgar from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, cycled over 90 miles from Bowness-on-Solway on the west coast near Carlisle, to Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear
Not only did Noah cycle a whole 90 miles across the country, he completed the grueling challenge in just three days.
Noah wasn’t alone, though. He was accompanied by dad Tim Elgar, aunt Jackie Schofield, and 13-year-old cousin Rhys Schofield.
His three-year-old sister joined the group for the last five minutes of the slog, but Noah completed the whole thing, leading people to believe he could be the youngest person to ever complete the coast to coast challenge.
And according to his dad, he made the whole thing look easy.
‘Noah’s always been naturally fit,’ Tim said. ‘He does park runs, loves riding his bike and was looking for a challenge, so we thought why not?’
‘He completed it all under his own steam, with only a couple of minor crashes on the way, and I think people have been really inspired by what he’s achieved.’
Tim told reporters that, although he wasn’t aware of an official age register for people taking on the Coast to Coast, he hadn’t heard of anyone younger taking part.
Noah, on the other hand, was more modest.
‘It was quite hard,’ Noah said. ‘Especially the second day when there were lots of hills, but I feel good having done it.’
Noah managed to raise £1,500 after taking part in the challenge, which will be split between two Sheffield-based charities.
