Isle of Wight cycle ride raises £1k for charity

Hundreds of cyclists have taken part in a trip on the Isle of Wight and raised £1,000 for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.

The End-to-End challenge saw bikers cycle from Culver Down to The Needles and back again on a 57-mile route designed by Isle of Wight GP Dr David Isaac.

Hospice fundraising manager Karen Eeles told the Isle of Wight County Press that the success of the event had exceeded all expectations.

She said: "Everyone had a great time and all the cyclists were such lovely people, all keen to help each other. There was a brilliant atmosphere."

Ms Eeles confirmed that following the success of the 2011 End-to-End challenge on the Isle of Wight, it will be held again next year, due to the "great" feedback from all of the participants.

Money is also being raised for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice by the Isle of Wight Walking Festival that is currently taking place on the island.
