A charitable cavalcade of around 65 cyclists arrived in Skegness today, hoping to have raised more than £5,000 for various good causes.

The seventh annual Stoney Stanton to Skegness Bike Ride set off from the Leicestershire town early this morning covering around 100 miles to its coastal destination.

Event organiser Gareth Truby said it had been one of the best rides in its history with most riders completing the challenge in under six hours.

“It was really good, the winds were with us and many riders had the best time they’d ever had,” he said.

Skegness has been the destination for the ride ever since its inception, partly because of it being 100 miles from the starting point but also because the local riders view it as ‘Leicester by the Sea’, or the ‘English Riviera’ as one described it.
