Cyclists hit £20k target
A group of cyclists from Bath have completed a 12-day challenge, raising more than £20,000 for charity.
The team of 11, aged 18 to 58, rode almost 800 miles, following the route of the Danube from its source in the Black Forest of Germany, to Budapest in Hungary, passing through Austria and Slovakia on the way.
They managed to raise £20,000 through sponsorship and donations, which will be split between Macmillan Cancer Support and Dorothy House.
The team was put together by father and son Lindsay and Will Holdoway, and sponsored by Lindsay's Bath company HPH Commercial Property.

Lindsay was inspired to fundraise for the two charities after losing both his parents to cancer.
He said: "I would like to say thank you to the sponsors for their generosity, and to everyone who has pledged money to help us reach our £20,000 target. The support we have received has been fantastic and each day we could see we were getting nearer to our target.
"Hearing the news that we had reached £20,000 was a massive boost for us as we started the last few miles into Budapest."
Will said: "It feels absolutely fantastic to have completed the challenge, and more importantly to have raised more than £10,000 for each charity."
