     A determined family of Yorkshire cyclists conquered rolling hills, slipped chains and a puncture to complete a gruelling 75 mile bike marathon.

1044375_665159336831332_1503137070_n     The Crazy Wheelers team; comprising Gary Stephenson, son Harry (16), brother-in-law Allan Davidson and nephew Lex (13) cycled from London to Brighton to encourage sponsorship and raise awareness for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.

     Gary lost his father-in-law, Pat Sullivan to pancreatic cancer last year within weeks of a surprise diagnosis and with survival rates for the disease especially low, at just 3%, the need to fund ongoing research is vital.
