HUNDREDS of people braved the rain to hop on their bikes and raise money for a good cause.

The annual Rugby Bikeathon was once again a huge success with around 900 people taking part on Sunday.

It is hoped that around £50,000 will have been raised which will all be donated to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
