A team of 50 riders linked to a Congresbury business cycled 250 miles to raise money for charity.
The riders from Black and White Hospitality, raised more than £40,000 during the charity fundraiser for PROPS - a Bristol charity that provides services and opportunities for people with learning difficulties.
The group, which was headed by the company's chief executive Nick Taplin, and Shezan Aslam, rode close to 250 miles in Mallorca, while ascending 12,000 feet, on some of Europe's most prominent cycling roads, including Sa Calobra.
The firm, which runs DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House, has raised £175,000 for charities over the past four years.
Nick said: "This was the fourth ride the firm has been involved with so far, and to have raised more than £175,000 for charitable causes is a fantastic achievement.
