It will raise funds for Missing People, the Red Cross and the RSPCA - charities chosen by Mr Reardon and Miss Yeates’s family.

Wearing bright red and white shirts, with the wording Cycle for Jo, they set off from the office where she worked in Bristol.

The relay ride has involved more than 200 riders from BDP linking offices in the UK, Ireland, and the Netherlands.

During the leg the cyclists are riding from Bristol to Winchester. The first riders set off from London on May 6 and the last team will arrive back in London on Wednesday - on International Missing Children’s Day.

Twenty five-year-old Joanna disappeared on December 17 and her body was discovered on Christmas Day.

Mr Reardon, who lived with her at the time she was murdered, reported her missing after returning home to their flat from a weekend away in Sheffield.

Vincent Tabak, a Dutch engineer who lived next door to Miss Yeates, has pleaded guilty to her manslaughter but denies murder and is due to face trial at Bristol Crown Court on October 4.
