Ryan Jubbie, Simon Lilliman, Shane Jubbie, Patrick Roberts and Martin Roberts started from the Mind branch on St. John street, Mansfield and rode 20 miles to the Bassetlaw Mind at Worksop.

The cyclists stopped for a break before heading back on the same route to Speed the Plough in Mansfield, for an afternoon of fun and games for both adults and children.

Dale Jubbie said: “This money will help keep our services running and help in new ventures across Nottinghamshire in the near future .
