Simon Tier from Fareham organised the ride on the Isle of Wight which raised over £2,500 for The Brain Tumour Research charity.

The 50-year-old said: '˜I set up the Brain Tumour Research Randonnee last year and this time round we had a fantastic ride in beautiful sunny conditions.

'˜My hope is to inspire others to help raise awareness for this awful disease, which has been so poorly funded for too long.'
