FORMER bomb disposal specialist Jack Cummings travelled on a hand bike between Cardiff and London to raise funds for injured servicemen.
Mr Cummings, 25, from Didcot, was serving with the Royal Engineers when he lost both his legs during his second tour of Afghanistan in 2010 as part of an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) search team.
Cycling star Mark Cavendish led thousands of fundraisers on the ride.
The cyclists, with several injured service personnel among them, brought journeys totalling 160,000 miles to the finishing line at Horse Guards Parade, central London, on Sunday.
Some had cycled from as far as Brussels, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Manchester, all aiming to raise a total of £1m for Help For Heroes.
Mr Cummings, a sapper from 101 Engineer Regiment, said that support from people on the side of the road during the Hero Ride was “absolutely brilliant”.
