The long awaited Greenway Santa Cycle took place on Sunday 20th March with no snow in sight! The cycle was postponed twice in December due to the weather conditions but it really was third time lucky for the 322 cyclists and 70 marshals who took part in the event to raise money and awareness for Bowel Cancer UK.
