The cyclists took part in either 25, 50 or 100-mile routes on the Heroica Hospice Ride, on Sunday, July 17, after setting off from the hospice, on Ashgate Road.

They headed out around the Peak District and southern Derbyshire before finishing back at Brampton Manor, on Old Road, Chesterfield.

Bolsover & District Cycling Club and Brampton Manor helped organise the successful event, formerly known as the Flagg Challenge.

Road racers, mountain bikers and even tandem riders took part.
