Almost 200 riders braved stormy weather to show their support for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Organisers expected a dismal turnout for the annual Park 2 Park Bike Ride, a 21.5-mile route through Rother Valley Country Park.
But nearly all of those who signed up - showed up despite the pouring rain and raised £19,000.
Aubrey Hill, organiser of the bike ride, said: “This is the third year I’ve staged this event and definitely the most challenging, but at the same time, it’s been the most rewarding.”
He added: “I would like to thank Parkgate Mobility Group who are the event’s main sponsor and the magnificent staff and volunteers at Bluebell Wood.”
