Nearly 100 cyclists pounded the pedals in aid of respite beach hut charity Everything Ellie. Organisers of the 24-hour Go Loopy cycle ride were asked to complete laps of the locally-known Powlers route, which starts and finishes at Bideford Rugby Club. Ricky Butler clocked up the most loops 10 in total or 215.6 miles to win himself a Garmin bike computer, donated by Barnstaple bike shop Carb Cycles. Andy Unstead finished eight loops (190.4 miles), winning a £50 Carb Cycles voucher. Phil Beasant wasnt far behind; he finished seven loops (152.6 miles) and won a £25 Carb Cycles voucher. The fastest lap recorded was by Tony Vesty (1 hour, 2mins) at 1am in lashing rain and wind. A total of 92 cyclists took part, raising £1971.80 for Everything Ellie, which was set up in memory of Barnstaple teenager Ellie Easton, who lost her battle with leukaemia in March last year. A presentation evening was held at bike shop Carb Cycles in Pilton Causeway.For more about the charity visit www.everythingellie.co.ukClick here to return to our homepage for more North Devon news.
