Athletic members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association UK have stopped off in Sheffield as part of a 600-mile charity bike ride challenge from Glasgow to London.

The team of 25 cyclists visited the Baitul Afiyat Mosque during their time in the city where they were met by community members and representatives from the British Heart Foundation.

The Ride4Peace charity cycle is just one of several events the association has organised to celebrate its 100th year anniversary in Britain.

Along the route the team will stop at 13 UK mosques, a Commonwealth memorial graveyard and a Wolrd War One memorial site to pay their respect to the fallen.

During the challenge the cyclists aim to dispel some of the sweeping stereotypes propagated against Muslims while raising money for the British Heart Foundation and Humanity First.
