SOGGY conditions did not deter cyclists from taking on a charity race.

Scores of people turned up at Rutland Water early yesterday (Sunday) to support the Air Ambulance Service.

Participants took on a gentler 17-mile route or a more taxing 23-mile ride around the reservoir.

There were plenty of smiling faces despite the damp conditions as people cycled to show their support for the charity, which serves Rutland and Northamptonshire.
