Thousands raised for charity by Tour de Furness riders - reported by Geoff James

 

Nearly £30,000 was raised for charities by the riders taking part in the 2018 Tour de Furness. A presentation was made at Barrow Golf Club to the riders raising the most sponsorship. Over 300 riders took part in the ride which covered 4 rides of 5, 13, 23 and 50 miles. One of the riders did the 50 mile ride on a bike made out of bamboo – she had previously ridden the length of South America on the bike!
