The riders set off from Welwyn Garden City and went through Hitchin and Royston before ending up at the charity's North Weald Airbase, where they were cheered by hundreds of families attending the EHAAT Family Fun Day.

Attractions at North Weald included live music, trade stalls, children's rides and displays by the Two Brothers stunt team.

Emily Donnachie, events manager at EHAAT, said: "It's been great to see so many supporters turn out to get behind this event.
