Ten Masham millers have cycled a 170 mile route to raise funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

A group of employees from I’Anson Brothers tackled the Way of the Roses and raised £3500 for the charity.

The three-day task was set when Ged Hall, Operations Manager at I’Anson Brothers feed mill challenged employees to come up with ideas for a fundraising effort.

They decided to raise money for cancer research as the disease had touched many of their families.

Starting at Morecambe on the Way of the Roses took the cyclists through a scenic but hilly course to the first night’s stop at Pateley Bridge.

After a good night’s rest, the group then made their way through the Studley Royal estate to York, stopping for the night at Pocklington before arriving on the sea front at Bridlington on their third and final day.

Mr Hall said: “It was a great three days experience for those that took part. We’re now keen to come up with the next challenge.

“We would especially like to thank Atkinsons coaches of Kirkby Malzeard for delivering us and our bikes to the start and picking us up from the finish, free of charge, as we wouldn’t have raised so much money for this important cause without the sponsorship.”
