Chris Lyttle MLA said: “With over 70,000 people in Northern Ireland living with diabetes, this event is a great way to raise awareness of a condition that is expected to affect more and more people over the coming years.

“By cycling over 200km, they are showing that diabetes does not have to be a barrier to living a full and active life.

“As a big supporter of cycling, I hope it will also encourage more people to take up this and other forms of active transport.”
