Wendy Cliffen raised almost £300 for children’s charity Action Medical Research by completing the RIDE100, a 100 kilometre bike ride.

She completed the ride in nine hours, four minutes and 19 seconds, a fantastic result for a novice rider.

The route started at the University of York and included Castle Howard, Kirkham Priory and the Yorkshire Wolds.

Wendy is Care Coordinator at Manby and Louth based Clarriots Care.

She said: “I am exhausted but ecstatic to have completed the ride and raised funds for my chosen charity, Action Medical Research. For over 60 years they have been saving and changing lives through medical research, helping sick and disabled children.

“I decided to do the ride not only to raise money for a worthy charity but also to challenge myself as I have never attempted anything this major before. It has taken six months of training to get fit enough to do it. I am thrilled that I managed to finish the ride and was proud to go through the finish line.”

James Carratt, Managing Director of Clarriots Care, said: “We are very proud of Wendy for completing the York 100 Bike Ride and raising a large amount of money and awareness for a such worthy charity. To bike 100 kilometres is such as great achievement. We are pleased to have been involved by supporting and sponsoring Wendy, and it was fantastic to see her commitment to this challenge. I spoke with Wendy many times during her training and she always had that determination that she was going to succeed, it was fantastic to see”.
