Hundreds turn out for leukaemia bikeathon.

SATURDAY saw over 350 riders take part in a fundraiser, inspired by the tale of a father of two who's battling Leukaemia.

Loz Harrison, aged 49 of Flint, was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia in June 2009 and over the past five years has helped to raise more than PS93,000 for charity by hosting the North Wales Coast Bikeathon.

Saturday's sponsored cycle, which was first launched in 2010, saw over 300 of riders make the journey from Prestatyn to Abergele and back, in a bid to raise vital funds for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Loz said: "There are so many people to thank, but I'd like to make special mention of our support team and also Denbighshire County Council who allowed us to use the facilities.

"I'd also like to thank the Daily Post for all the coverage over the years, and helping our cause."
