Scarborough cyclists are pictured at the end of a 400km cycle ride in Jamaica to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Cheryl, the area fundraising manager for the charity, said: “We all enjoyed a thoroughly amazing experience, the challenge and the cameraderie amongst wonderful individuals is something that I will never forget.”

The charity hopes to raise £107,000 from the event which saw 20 other cyclists from across the UK to take part in the adventure of a lifetime.

An eight-day challenge led participants on a coastal route along the island’s northern shore, from Robin’s Bay to Negril, tackling a variety of terrain in unseasonably hot temperatures – sometimes more than 40C.
