King's Lynn club's charity ride boosts mental health cause
Hundreds of cyclists helped to raise funds for a leading mental health charity by taking part in a West Norfolk club’s fundraising ride at the weekend.
Members of the King’s Lynn Cycling Club held their third annual Pedal Lynn, which started and finished at the Great Massingham village hall, on Sunday.
Riders were able to choose from routes ranging in distance from a family-friendly eight miles to 100 miles, aimed at the more serious cyclist.
And officials were delighted to raise a total of £1,500 for West Norfolk Mind during the day, which was supported by Pedal Revolution and numerous sponsors.
Club secretary Phil Seaman said planning was already underway with a view to staging the event, which was well received by participants, again in 2020.
He said: “Hundreds of riders turned up and enjoyed a choice of four routes. They were all very complementary about how well the event was organised.
“Special thanks must go to Trevor Simper for his time and dedication in successfully achieving in this fundraising task.
"Also, thanks must go the all the committee members for their hard work in making it so successful.”
