A group of Worksop cyclists took on a famous Tour de France challenge and paid their respects to a local legend, on a recent sporting trip.
The riders rode Mont Ventoux, with its gruelling ascent and wind, and Alpe d’Huez.
They also stopped at the Tommy Simpson memorial to show respect to the Harworth world champion who died during the ascent of Mont Ventoux in 1967.
All of the local riders would recommend the cycling trip to anyone.
Charles Watkinson said: “If you ever get chance to do either of these climbs give it a go, it will stay with me the rest of my life.”
