More than 130 cyclists turned out on Saturday for a 14th annual bike ride in aid of Garden House Hospice Care.

The cycle challenge, organised each year by Kerry Duggan, started from The George and Dragon pub in Graveley.

Kerry said: ”This year’s bike ride was a massive success with over 130 riders taking part. The support I received from all my helpers, Marshall’s and sponsors has been amazing and I couldn’t do it without them.

“A huge thank you to The George and Dragon for hosting my event in its 14th year and to all those who took part and donated. The money raised will be donated to Garden House in Letchworth to help them keep providing such fantastic care.”

The charity ride has raised £6,000 for the hospice so far, with more sponsorship money yet to be collected.
