Cyclists from all over the county came across to the Royal Oak Pub, also known as The Splash, in Little Cawthorpe, near Louth, taking part in either the 12 or 30-mile rides across the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds.

Shoes were also laced up by those taking on the 10km country run or the 3.5-mile fun walk.

In total, there were 18 walkers, 22 runners and 98 riders taking part in this year’s event.

Ruth Knowles, co-founder of the Emma-Jayne Memorial Fund, said: “The feedback from this year’s event, as always, has been very positive, with everyone saying how much they really enjoyed the day.

“Myself and Tony would just like to say a big thank you to Tim and Lindsey at The Splash for the use of their fantastic venue once again, Your Move in Sutton on Sea for supplying the chocolate bars, Huttoft Service Station for the water bottles for the runners and walkers, and Louth Cycle Centre for providing the event with free cycle hire.

“Also a big mention must go out to everyone who came out to help on the day, whether it be marshalling, manning the drink stops or helping out on the desk – your support is always appreciated and, of course, to all those who came out on the day to take part.”

The date is already set for next year’s event, which is due to take place on Sunday, July 24, 2016.
