Galway comedian Stevo Timothy is attempting to complete a charity cycle tomorrow evening in aid of the Irish Wheelchair Association.

The Galway comic, who has incomplete paraplegia following a motorbike accident in 2015, uses a wheelchair and walks with the aid of crutches.

Mr Timothy whose Mother is from Mayo, is known for his Farmer Michael sketches, said training for the 5km cycle saw him get back on a bicycle for the first time in "six or seven years".

Stevo will undertake the cycle on a 400m track tomorrow, and so far he has raised over €46,000 through his GoFundMe page.
