A TEAM of fund-raisers have got on their bikes to cycle 170 miles from Morecambe to Bridlington to raise money for two good causes.

Jamie Pyne, Steve Binnington and Anthony Christian have cycled the Way of the Roses from Morecambe to Bridlington to raise money for The Friends of Sewerby Outreach and Candlelighters.

Jamie said they found the hills of the Yorkshire Dales to be the most challenging part of the ride and then they faced unexpected floods in York.

A fourth member of the team, Dan Silver, set out to complete an even more arduous journey, cycling from Bridlington to Morecambe and back again but after 190 miles he unfortunately had to return home due to a knee injury.

He recovered sufficiently to join the remainder of the group on the last leg from Burton Agnes onto Bridlington sea front.

All the cyclists then cycled to Sewerby Worklink where they were greeted by a loud cheer from the students, staff and volunteers.

Sewerby Worklink supports people with a learning disability to experience the world of work, through horticulture.

The cyclists have said a special thank you to Tony Whatmore and Devon Ogden who drove and supported the team throughout the weekend.
