They received fantastic backing from the public, with over 400 in attendance for the group finish in Swansea’s Bracelet Bay.

Presented by Wales rugby legend Jonathan Davies, the cycle challenge raises significant funds each year for the South West Wales Cancer Centre in Singleton Hospital and Velindre Cancer Centre.

This was the first year three different distances were introduced, and it proved a big success with riders of all ages and abilities.

The ride raised £55,963.75, with Swansea Bay's share amounting to £27,981.88.
