A GROUP of friends cycled more than 190 miles across the Pennines to raise more than £10,000 for a cancer charity.

The event was organised by Peter Nolan, 51, from Exeter Gardens in Stamford, who was joined by 13 others on the marathon ride to raise funds for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Peter has battled through lymphoma after he was diagnosed with the cancer four years ago.

The group set off from the west coast at Morecombe last Friday and completed their challenge at Bridlington on the east coast on Sunday.

Their ‘Way of the Roses’ route also took them over the Yorkshire Dales and Wolds.

Peter said: “It was fantastic. All of us got there in the end and from our point of view the cycling was great and we saw some fantastic scenery.

“I decided to organise the event to celebrate the skills of those who treated me so well in hospital.

“We’re just delighted with the response we’ve had and all the donations. It really makes it all worthwhile.”
