Barnsley’s Charity Cycling squad Team CF joined up with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Planet X to raise £15,000 in a charity bike ride.

The 65 Roses Holme Moss Classic involved 300 riders leaving the Magna Science and Adventure Centre in Rotherham to tackle a challenging route, including the iconic ascent of Holme Moss.

The event got its name as some young sufferers have difficulty pronouncing cystic fibrosis and say 65 roses instead.

Ride organiser Martin Dainty, whose eight-year-old daughter Molly suffers from cystic fibrosis, said: “Thanks to advances in the treatment of the disease, Molly and other sufferers now enjoy a quality of life that simply would not be possible without the dedicated work of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
