A TEAM of Wirral cyclists took part in a cross-border 100-mile ride for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The 11, who are from Wirral-based DOBS and FOBS cycling club joined fellow member Lynn Walter, for the ride from Carlisle, Cumbria, across the border to Scotland and finished at Cramond Beach, Edinburgh.

It took took seven hours and 45 minutes.

Lynn, 60, is a care home quality manager and the cycle challenge raised £550 funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, the chosen charity of her employer the Hill Care Group, which is based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.

Lynn said: "I wanted to do the challenge for Macmillan Cancer Support because my dear friend and neighbour is currently being supported by Macmillan nurses.

"I expected the ride to be very hard, especially as it's overnight.

"I worried about staying awake but I managed it.

"I'm used to cycling up to 50 to 60 miles on a regular basis, but this was a lot more miles.

"There was also a seven-mile-long hill, just after the food stop at 50 miles, which was a challenge.

"I'm so pleased with the amount we managed to raise for Macmillan, a charity close to the hearts of everyone at Hill Care.

"I was glad to do my bit for the group, as we aim to raise thousands this year to support those with cancer and their loved ones."

Last year, Hill Care Group group raised more than £7,000 for the Stroke Association and, in 2017/18, over £10,000 for the Alzheimer's Society.
