Riders as young as five and as old as 71 took part in the Gainsborough Riverside Festival Sponsored Cycle on Sunday.

The event started and finished at Gainsborough Old Hall, as the riders departed and returned into town along the River Side Cycle Path.

After heading through Morton and riding along Laughton Lane the group divided one riding 10 miles and the other riders 22 miles.

Gainsborough Aegir Cycling Club were cycling ambassadors, guiding riders around the routes.

Groups of riders from Gainsborough Riverside Festival committee and Performing Arts Club of St Johns took part.

The day was windy for the 20 cyclists that took part, a strong south wind made it a difficult ride home along the riverside.

This year’s Gainsborough Riverside Festival is on Saturday 8th June and the theme this year is the celebration of the arrival of the Vikings along the River Trent 1,000 years ago.
