Fundraisers pedal power for Trinity Hospice
Cyclists gathered in their hundreds to raise cash for Trinity Hospice.
The Beaverbrookes Bike Ride set off from Fairhaven Lake on Sunday morning.
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.”
