Cyclists put their feet to the pedals to help combat the effect of climate change.

People from Mill Hill and Potters Bar joined over 150 others people on for The Catholic Agency for Overseas Development’s Pedal Against Poverty on Sunday.

Mill Hill teacher Emma Rose McCloskey rode for her first time, while twins Imogen and Eleanor Walls, from Potters Bar showed off their impressive cycling skills.

The annual event, now in its eighth year, raises money for CAFOD’s international poverty-fighting work. The ride followed a scenic route from the River Lee to Broxbourne.

Money raised will be used to combat climate change and its impact on poor, rural communities.
