A Derbyshire adventurer has returned home after setting a new world record for riding more than 3,000 miles on a bike with no saddle.

Squash Falconer, 31, from Thulston, rode a machine called an Elliptigo, which combines running with cycling.

Ms Falconer, who has previously climbed mountains and then paraglided off them, said the nine and a half week trip was hard work.

She has raised £3,270 for a breast cancer awareness charity.

Ms Falconer said: "It's quite different to what you might have seen before. It's more like running but looks like cycling.

"The event was called the Go Trek, and I did a 3,074 mile [4,947 km] journey around Europe.

"We went down to the south in France and back up, the finale was in Paris under the Eiffel Tower."
