Friday to Sunday saw King’s Lynn Cycling Club members from all ages and abilities take on the Tesco Hardwick store challenge of cycling to Lapland at the Lynn supermarket.

The club managed to achieve the distance required with extra mileage on top, totalling 2,595 miles in three days whilst helping the store to raise £673 for British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.

On Saturday Go Ride Children’s Club took part alongside adult members from KLCC and Sunday had a visit from KLA (King’s Lynn Academy) students and staff to assist as well. A great team effort and club spokesperson and organiser Mrs Annie Thompson thanked everyone who rode on the static bikes provided by Sports Direct Gym or on their own turbo and bikes.

She commented: “Tesco Store Hardwick invited us again this year to help the store to raise money for their chosen charities and we love a challenge. Also thanks to the generosity of Tesco customers in helping to contribute to the charities and encouraging riders throughout the weekend.”
