Three cyclists biked 300 miles in six days to raise money for a little girl suffering with a rare genetic disorder.
Holli Smith, of Renhold, and friends James Bliss and Emily Wriggleworth, took part in the mammoth bike ride, going from Bedford to Norfolk, East Anglia and back to Bedford in six days.
They biked for around six hours a day completing 50 miles every day and camped along the way.
Holli, 23, said: “There were moments where it was really, really tough. Everyone had different days where they found it really tough going, but we kept each other going.
“We met lots of people along the way, because we were wearing our t-shirts, a lot of people stopped and asked us what we were doing. And we also picked up a lot of donations along the way, which was great.”
The biking trio took on the challenge to raise money for charity Genetic Disorders UK as Holli’s niece Sienna Smith suffers with a rare disorder meaning that she had an extra chromosome. The trio has raised nearly £4,000.
Sienna suffers with learning difficulties and has delayed, and possibly absent, speech.
Her mum Michelle Husband said: “I am so touched that they have done this for Holli.”
