Chris Britton, of Bristol, and Lucas Meagor, of Kingston-upon-Hull, are pictured in Onchan on Saturday night visiting the village’s gold post box.

The pair are on a man-powered 27-day mission to cycle 3,000 miles to all the 111 post boxes painted gold in the home towns of Great Britain’s gold-medal winning athletes at London 2012, as well more than 25 venues used during the event.

The Isle of Man was included as Manx cyclist Peter Kennaugh was part of the record-breaking four-man pursuit team, and the visit was supported by the Steam Packet.

The pair’s trek is scheduled to finish on Thursday (June 26) at the post box on Hessle Road in Kingston-upon-Hull, commemorating boxer Luke Campbell’s success in the bantam weight, and is raising money for three charities: ParalympicsGB, Tree of Hope and Sport Relief.
