By Jonathan White
Four men from Crewe and Nantwich have finished a gruelling three-day charity bike ride across England.

Ben Reinhardt, 58, TonyMason, 62, Terry O’Connor, 62, and Chris Raiswell, 42, did the ‘Coast to Coast’ from Cumbria to Sunderland.

It began when they cycled a relatively flat ride from Workington to Penrith (55 miles) via Cockermouth and Keswick.

The second day took them via some long climbs fromPenrith to Sunderland (80 miles).

On the third day they cycled an extra leg from Sunderland to Newcastle-upon-Tyne (33 miles), which included a section through the North Shields cycle tunnel.

They then all took the train back to Crewe.

Ben is raising money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

Tony, Chris and Terry are raising money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Tony said: “The rides were challenging in places but wewere rewarded with some stunning scenery.

“I would like to thank everyone whohas so generously donated to our nominated charities, which will benefit somany people.”
