A cyclist wants to inspire others to take up the sport after producing films about his cycling experiences abroad.

Jonny Ellis, of Whitehall Road, Harrow, has documented his tales of cycling across Eastern Europe and through the ancient cities of Greece in two half hour movies.

The 26-year-old, who returned from his latest trip to Greece in October, now wants to promote the “wonders” of cycle holidays as an easy way to keep fit and healthy.

Amateur film maker Mr Ellis said: “Cycling abroad is an amazing experience and something I’ll remember for the rest of my life. I want to inspire others to take up cycling with my movies.

“It’s never too late to start - I properly began cycling when I was 21 and it’s a great way to travel around time without paying for transport.”

As well as his 500km tour of Greece, he also joined friends cycling London to Istanbul and cycled across India and the South of France.
