A mass cycling event raised thousands of pounds for a local church and hospice.
Wedmore 40/30 took place on June 16 and saw 184 cyclists ? including 36 children.
Riders were given the opportunity to tackle routes ranging from 12 to 30 miles for an easier challenge and 40 to 70 miles for more experienced cyclists, in a bid to raise money for the Friends of St Mary's Church and Weston Hospicecare.
John Ford, one of the organisers, said: "We have raised £4,500 so far, we've still got sponsorship money coming in.
"This is the second year we've done the event and we're pleased with how it went.
