His weekend hikes totaled 1,941.87 miles.

The father-of-one started his wanderings last September and recently ended up on Alma Vale Road, Clifton – the street where he was born.

Simon, a night shift worker, said: “It gives a nice cyclical close to my Bristol adventure.

“I started with local roads and moved further afield later in the year.

“Walking helped me get out of the house at a time when you just couldn’t get out.

“It helped tremendously and gave me a goal to focus on.”

Simon, 55, walked between four and 20 miles each time and had his wife pick him up when he was done. Using the Strava mapping app, he marked each street on an Ordnance Survey map.

Simon had previously set out to follow the roads alphabetically, going north-south from Severn Beach to Whitchurch and east-west from Fishponds to Avonmouth.

He said: “I’ve walked silly things like every sports field and cricket ground.

“I love a challenge but I ran out of ideas and I’ve always said I wanted to walk the streets of Bristol.”
