Burnham-On-Sea cyclists raise £2,000 during 100km night bike ride

Four Burnham-On-Sea residents raised £2,000 for charity by completing a 100km night cycle between London and Brighton at the weekend.

Louise Crew, Toria Taylor, Marcus Medd and Alan Clarke took part in the Moon Ride in aid of Breast Cancer Care.

Louise, who has raised many thousands of pounds for cancer charities since having breast cancer herself 12 years ago, her daughter Toria, partner Marcus and friend Alan set off from Alexandra Palace at 10.30pm and cycled the 66 miles to Brighton with nearly 750 other riders.

The group tackled London's Friday night traffic, then into the countryside, as the heavens opened for an hour, fought a strong headwind, and eventually arrived in Brighton at 7.20am the following morning, which was Louise's birthday.

Between them they raised approximately £2000 and they thank all those that kindly sponsored them.
