More than 750 cycling enthusiasts pedalled either 15 or 45 miles to rake in an impressive £25,000 for the hospice, which helps take care of terminally ill adults and children across the Fylde coast.

Shirley Morgan, staff worker at Trinity Hospice, said: “It was an absolutely great event.

“It was our 25th anniversary of the bike ride so it was our hope that we would raise £25,000.

“Over the history of the race we have raised more than £300,000.

“We had two starting points so people could choose whether they do the 15 or 45 miles, but a lot of people chose the 45 miles. We had a couple of riders that clocked 80 miles each.

“There’s a lot of very serious cyclists taking part, but we also get people who ride for pleasure. It’s not a race, so they can take as long as they want and stop and have an ice cream on the way.

“We have a lot of people who have done the race every year for 20 years or more.”
