A salon and spa owner tackled up to eight inches of thick mud as part of a charity cycling challenge which raised over £1,000.
Gina Conway, a self-confessed adrenaline junkie, took on the 30 mile challenge around the North Downs for WaterAid, a charity her company supports in their day-to-day work.
Mrs Conway owns Gina Conway Aveda Lifestyle Salons and Spas in Wimbledon Hill Road, Wimbledon.
She said: "It was intense.
"It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. "I am an adrenaline junkie and like doing physical and mental challenges but this was hard."
In some places, mud hindered progress but the mum-of-three completed the challenge on Saturday, April 26, in four hours.
WaterAid aims to transform lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities.
