More than £8,000 was raised at the Newmarket Hilly Cycle Sportive last weekend.

A total of 204 adults and 12 children took part in routes ranging from 100 miles to 2.5km around the country lanes of Suffolk.

“This was a great day and there has been really positive feedback from the riders,” said Newmarket Festival deputy chairman Kevin Hancock.

“It’s satisfying to be able to raise funds for local causes with an event that anyone can join in with.”
