Nearly 200 riders started and finished at Grange Farm in Thorpe Langton after taking on four challenging routes.

A barbecue, with a donation of beer from Langton Brewery, and live music topped off the day.

Proceeds are still being chalked up, but the charity believes the total will be close to £6,000.

Chair of Macmillan’s Market Harborough fundraising group, Eunice Loney, said: “It was a wonderful event. The weather was kind, the venue was perfect and there was a lot of space to sit outside.

“It’s such a popular event. We’re hoping even more people will sign up next year.”
