Fundraising BMX bike ride in Burnham raises charity cash

BMX enthusiasts jumped onto their bikes to raise money for charity in Burnham-On-Sea on Friday evening (August 19th).

Burnham 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 "We hope to hold another similar event next year."
