The ride took them out into the beautiful countryside of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

Club spokeswoman Francine van Leeuwen said: “It was a great day out and an opportunity to ride alongside friends from other local clubs as well as hundreds of other people wishing to help the fabulous cause.”

Organised by WheelPower, the national charity for wheelchair sport, the Tour de Vale has raised hundreds of pounds that have transformed the lives of thousands of disabled children and newly injured adults in the last 17 years.
