Harrogate businessman Mike Carter has helped raise £1,000 for a children’s charity by cycling 100 miles across North Yorkshire.

Mike Carter, Adam Hirst, Mark Howlett and Ryan Groves – who call themselves Merlot’s Mates – completed the route for the Wooden Spoon charity which is dedicated to helping disadvantaged and disabled children and young people.

The route took the four men from Masham Brewery to Tan Hill in Swaledale, the highest pub in Britain, before they headed to Leyburn and completed the cycle ride back in Masham.

Mike, director at SoVibrant said:

It took us six hours but it was well worth it,” said , the multi-discipline creative design agency based at Hornbeam Park, Harrogate, with a reputation for creating the ‘wow factor’ in its innovative design projects.

The Wooden Spoon charity does such a lot of good work for children and I really appreciate their efforts having a disabled brother myself.

Merlot’s Mates have already booked in their next challenge for the charity. On 17 August this year they will cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats, aiming to raise £14,000.
