Ride for Barnsley Hospital Ride for Barnsley Hospital


A TEAM of cyclists are hoping to have raised more than £1,000 - after cycling 170 miles in two days.

Team Tarn cyclists Glenn Tolan, Michael Hirst, Ronnie Erskine, Jason Eyre, Andy Clarke, Mick Smith, Andy Fell and Andrew Beverley rode 'The Way of The Roses' trail between Morecambe and Bridlington last weekend.

They're raising money for Barnsley Hospital Charity and in particular the Paediatric Diabetes Unit, after Ronnie's son was diagnosed with type one diabetes in 2011.

Ronnie, 45, of Sike Close, Darton, said: “The ride went really well. It was very wet and it was a very gruelling 170 miles but all the riders completed it.

"The paediatric diabetes unit and the team of highly-skilled nurses and support staff provide much needed advice, help and support on dealing with this incurable condition.

"We're hoping to have raised £1,000 minimum."
