One of the riders was Mike Fitsell, a Costs Lawyer from Osborne Morris & Morgan. His brother and sister both attend MK Snap, which offers education, life skills, work preparation and opportunities to people with learning difficulties.

Mike said he was only too happy to take part in the event to ‘give back’ and raise funds for the charity.

The sportive, which is in its fourth year, offered riders a choice of three different routes - the new

Cheeky 25-mile, the Classic 50-mile and the Epic 75-mile – all around the stunning villages

surrounding Milton Keynes, Bucks and Beds.

Avid cyclist Mike, said:“It was a lovely day out with pretty much ideal weather conditions. In the end I cycled 81.37 miles – after cycling to the start as well."

Osborne Morris & Morgan supplied the 400 riders with water bottles for the event.
