Lawrence Dallaglio and Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff arrived at Westfield Shopping Centre today after a gruelling 28 day bike ride covering a total of 1,800 miles for charity.

The pair set off from Mount Olympia in Greece on the Dallaglio Flintoff Cycle Slam 2012, which was supported by Virgin Media.

Both men were two of 14 core riders, which also included footballers Greme Le Saux and Lee Dixon, who rode the full 2,872km of some of Europe's toughest terrains over five stages.

Around 250 cyclists took part at some stage, and the ride has raised over £2 million for charity.

Dallaglio told The Sun: "When I finished my rugby career, I wanted to do some big physical challenges with lots of people and in 2010 we did the Six Nations bike ride.

"It's an amazing year this year with the Olympics in London, and it got me thinking about doing a physical challenge around the Olympics.

"Olympia to the Olympic Park sounded right."
