Warwickshire cyclists support those with spinal muscular atrophy

CYCLISTS saddled up for charity at the weekend.

More than 100 riders took to the highways and byways of south Warwickshire to raise money for charity Spinal Muscular Atrophy UK.

The annual Ride Scorpion event started at The Howard Arms in Ilmington with riders taking on a 50-mile or 20-mile circular route through the Cotswold countryside.

Participants were sponsored by their family and friends to raise valuable funds for those affected by Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a genetically inherited neuromuscular condition. It causes progressive muscle weakness and loss of movement due to muscle wasting (atrophy).

They were supported along the way by volunteer marshals from the charity and local community groups.
