A cycling club swapped their matching kit for superhero costumes and fancy dress for a festive lap of the Chew Valley.

Around 40 members of Salt and Sham Cycle Club rode the 25-mile route on November 30, which also saw riders using any mode of transport they wished, including tandems, Raleigh Choppers, vintage bikes and a sleigh.

Costume and bike of the day was awarded to “Evel Knievel” – or Paul Walsh – who also donated the bike to the group’s Christmas party auction held later that day at Saltford Hall.

The bike auction helped raise more than £350 – with donations from Jamie Hathaway, Richard Franklin, Glynn Hayward and Jim Bainton – which will go to CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).
