Cyclists' 200k mission
THREE top businessmen brought their bike ride to Plymouth – to raise some dough for charity.
And what better place for the Sustainable Bike Ride to garner support than the Royal William Bakery, at the Royal William Yard?
Mark Linehan, Mike Mellor and Andy Cook pedalled 200km across Devon and Cornwall in just two days to raise £5,000 for Springboard, which helps jobless young people find careers in hospitality; and for Action Against Hunger, the organisation committed to ending child hunger.
Starting from near Newquay, on Cornwall's north coast, and ending at Shaldon, in South Devon, the trio visited some important sustainable venues en route, including the Royal William Bakery, to collect donations of organic and locally produced ingredients.

These will be used by chefs at the ODE Café, in Shaldon, to create a sustainable supper and raise more money for the good causes.
Mark Linehan is managing director of The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), Mike Mellor is managing director of Space Catering, and Andy Cook is a partner at Ease project management.
Mr Linehan said: "The South West is home to some of the finest and most sustainable food producers and restaurants in the UK, including a number of SRA members, which makes it the perfect place to stage this charity cycle ride.
"Springboard is a charity with which we have an excellent working relationship and it's a privilege to be raising money to support the work it is doing."
