Nine Manx cyclists have taken part in a 441-mile ride across the Pyrenees for a Island-based children’s charity.

The team took on the challenge of completing the Raid Pyrenean ride from Hendaye in south west France to Cerbere in the south east.

They raised £8,625 for The Children’s Centre in the process.

Fundraising coordinator Mark Eastham is planning a similar cycle challenge for next year.

He says he’s very proud of the teams success:
