A group of cyclists received a heroes’ welcome after they completed a gruelling 380 mile challenge to raise £21,000 for a Sheffield charity.

The sixteen-strong team, made up of colleagues from internet service provider ASK4, rode together to raise vital funds for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

They were accompanied on the final leg back into Sheffield by South Yorkshire actor and cycling enthusiast Dean Andrews - best known for the BBC television drama Life on Mars.

Riding over four days, the team finally made it back to cheering crowds and into the arms of friends and family.

Celebrations got underway moments after hopping off the saddle as a champagne shower filled the air.

The riders were kitted out in bike gear designed especially for the journey by pupils from Hinde House School in Wincobank.

The fundraising event, known as ‘4Challenge’, took the participants from London’s docklands to Manchester Science Park and through the centre of Leeds, before finally heading back to Sheffield.

Money raised will now be used to buy state-of-the-art facilities for the hospital’s radiotherapy unit.
