Hundreds of pounds was raised for a Burnham-On-Sea charity when dozens of motorbikers took part in a fundraising cycle ride on Sunday (May 10th).

A total of 55 bikers from across the South West took part in the 110 mile tour of Somerset, which began at Highbridge's Bristol Bridge Inn, as pictured below.

The riders travelled through Bridgwater, North Petherton, Ilminster, Shepton Mallet, Wells, Cheddar and Weston-super-Mare, before finishing on Burnham's Esplanade.

A total of £284 was raised for BARB, the charity that operates Burnham's two life-saving rescue hovercrafts and an inshore rescue boat.

"The weather was superb and everyone had a great day," said organiser Norman Templeman. "We were delighted to have bikers taking part from across the South West, including Bristol and Exeter."
