Lincoln cyclists prepared for White Peaks challenge
A group of cyclists will take on the White Peaks challenge to mark a Lincoln woman's victory over cancer.
The gruelling 85-mile ride with almost 10,000ft of climbing, is to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
Team leader, Alex Green's close friend, Sarah Snow, 31, from Lincoln, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in January this year.
After an eight month battle involving fortnightly chemotherapy, she was placed in remission in September.

Sarah said: "This is such an important charity as it can take so long to get diagnosed.
"I didn't realise I had a life threatening disease.
"In the end I had an idea what was wrong but nothing can prepare you for hearing you've got cancer.
"Support from friends, loved ones and charities helped me beat the cancer."
The cyclists – Alex, Simon Shepherd, Chris Lee, Alex Colman and Matt Greenhill – from Velo Club Lincoln have been riding over 400 miles per month since May.
That has been in preparation for the Peak District race on October 13.
