Charity cyclists ride through on way to coast

Have your say

Cyclists who are hoping to raise thousands of pounds for charity passed through Sheffield yesterday as part of an 800-mile challenge.

A dozen cyclists including former Aston Villa footballer Steve Staunton are riding along seven coastlines around England, Ireland and Wales in seven days.

South and City College Birmingham have organised the cycle ride as part of a challenge which is trying to raise over £50,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust and The Stephen Staunton Foundation.

The cyclists set off from Cleethorpes on Sunday and rode past the Botanical Gardens in Sheffield yesterday and out along the A57 towards the Peak District.
