The beneficiaries, including St Albans based organisations Home-Start and Youth Talk, also saw the SACCR’s winners receive their trophies.

A fixture of the St Albans social calendar, the SACCR is organised annually by the city’s four Rotary Clubs.

SACCR chair, Christine Thomson, said: “I want to thank all those riders who participated in this year’s St Albans Rotary Charity Cycle Ride, as well as our sponsors the Herts Advertiser, KDW, and the Herts Tool Company, and the numerous Rotarian organisers for their continuing support.”

Among the winners were 10-year-old Amelia O’Callaghan, who received the trophy for the under-16 who raised the most in sponsorship.

Scott Regan received the trophy for the adult who raised the most.

Several trophies were also awarded for the best pub team, best private team, and best family team.
