Bedford Modern School Year 13 student Alice van der Schoot completed a 50km Dracula Bike Ride in the Transylvanian Alps in Romania over the May Bank Holiday weekend.
18-year old Alice raised over £3,500 for the Humanitas charity through sponsorship.
Alice said: “Battling through hail, rain, mountainous terrains and even a river was tough but the views were breathtaking.
“I felt a great sense of achievement cycling across the finish line at Dracula’s castle.
“The money raised will go to help with medical supplies, homes, and education for Romanian orphans.”
Alice is a member of Bedford Modern School’s Outreach Committee and was also shortlisted in the Bedfordshire Young People of the Year Awards.
