CHARITY bike-riders raised £6,000 for Overgate Hospice.
This year’s Mountain Bike Challenge for the Elland hospice was a record, with 221 cyclists participating in the 26-mile challenge.
One group of friends from Elland, who had never before taken part in a cycling event, managed to raise an impressive £1,500 for the worthy cause.
Anthony Golding, 24, described the experience as “brilliant, despite a few falls and punctures”.
Laura Ramsden, Overgate’s Community Fundraiser, said: “We are really looking forward to next year’s event and hope to build on the success of this year”.
