Fifteen volunteers cycled over 300 miles on a static exercise bike in store at Tesco in Riverfield Drive, Bedford, over the weekend of November 14 and 15.

The Cycle to Santa event raised £1,038.69 from customer donations for Autism Bedfordshire, a charity that provides information, advice, emotional and practical support to people with autistim, their families and professionals throughout Bedfordshire.

Charity spokesman Claire Thompson said: “We are incredibly grateful to Pure Gym for the use of their exercise bike and Tesco Riverfield Drive for hosting the event and keeping our cyclists hydrated. However, the event would not have been such a huge success without the incredible support and generosity of the customers.”
