A team of 50 riders linked to a Congresbury business cycled almost 250 miles in a bid to raise thousands of pounds for charity.
The team from Black and White Hospitality, raised more than £40,000 during the charity fundraiser for PROPS - a Bristol charity that provides services and opportunities for people with learning difficulties.
The group, which was headed by the chief executive Nick Taplin, and Shezan Aslam, rode close to 250 miles in Mallorca, while ascending 12,000 feet, on some of Europe's most prominent cycling roads, including Sa Calobra.
The firm, which runs DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House, has raised £175,000 for charities over the past four years.
Nick said: "This was the fourth ride the firm has been involved with, and to have raised more than £175,000 for charitable causes is a fantastic achievement.
