The UK End2End ride fulfilled the ambition of a lifetime for me. If anyone asks me if they should do a cycling challenge with Action Medical Research I have a very short answer. Get your cycling shorts on!”

Dermot Murnaghan is one of the nation’s best-known and most experienced news readers. He is currently one of Sky’s main news anchors, presenting Sky News with Dermot Murnaghan.

Before moving to Sky, he occupied the BBC Breakfast sofa for five years and also spent 11 years at ITN, where he was the presenter who broke the news to the nation about the sudden death of Diana, Princess of Wales. Aside from news, he also presents the early evening quiz show Eggheads on BBC2.

A keen cyclist, Dermot hosts our Champions of CycleSport Dinner and has tackled the tough Action End2End (Land’s End to John O’Groats) bike ride.
