BMX bike ride in Burnham raises charity cash
enthusiasts jumped onto their bikes to raise money for charity
in Burnham-On-Sea on Friday evening (August 19th).
BMX Club and Sue Ryder Care organised the 'BMX Ride for Ryder'
at the town's Apex Park BMX track, as pictured here.
A group of sponsored riders pedalled 30 laps around the track
and several children's races were also held to raise money, alongside
a plate-smashing challenge.
"A fun evening was had by everyone and the final figure
raised is still being tallied up," organiser Helen Roberts
told Burnham-On-Sea.com. "We hope to hold another similar
event next year."
