Staff got on their bikes to complete an epic challenge in aid of charity.

Employees from North Tyneside CAB and Barclays were joined by volunteers to take part in the Mouth to Mouth Challenge, a bike ride from the mouth of the river Tweed in Berwick to the mouth of the river Tyne.

Staff from the CAB were keen to cycle one mile for every year the charity has helped people – 75 years – but ended up covering 84 miles.

At the end of the challenge they raised more than £2,000, with donations still coming in.

The riders were supported by Northumberland-based WATBike charity, who provided the bikes, personnel and equipment.

North Tyneside CAB project manager Mark Brown said: “We set out to raise £1,500 for North Tyneside CAB to continue to provide a valuable service to the community and to raise our profile as a charitable organisation.

“Thanks to all those who took part and we will be looking for riders to take part in 2015. With continued support we can carry on for another 75 years and beyond.”
