On your bike

MORE than £600 was raised for charity by two keen cyclists – but one only made it two thirds of the way to their destination before being rushed to hospital.
Mandie Dyke, barmaid at Vs Bar in Meadow Street, Weston, joined Jason Winsley, of Radstock, to take on the mission in aid of Somerset Air Ambulance.
Mandie made it part-way to Weston but then got taken to hospital when she flew over the handlebars, but was not seriously injured.
Jason made it all the way from Radstock to Weston, but sponsors paid out for both the volunteers.
