THESE three cyclists tackled a gruelling 70-mile bike ride to help Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Brandon Ingham, 18, from Royston, Patrick Dexter, 15, from Cudworth, and Michael White, 18, also from Cudworth, cycled from Barnsley to Scunthorpe and strapped their camping gear to their bikes before hitting the open road.

Former Barnsley College students Michael and Brandon have done a number of charity bike rides in the past and recruited Carlton Community College friend Patrick to the cause.

Michael said they were happy to arrive in Scunthorpe on time - despite taking a wrong turn.

"Duct-taping the equipment to bikes was probably the most difficult bit," he said.

And the reward for a hard days biking? "A McDonald's," said Michael. "I think it's well deserved."
