CHARITY: Batman and Robin joined more than 30 cyclists who took part in a cycle ride for Iain Rennie Grove House Hospice Care on Sunday.

Neil Smith and sidekick Ben Glover got dressed up for the fifth annual 16.6-mile Robin Hood Bike Ride.

The route goes out from the Brook Street pub in Tring and back again.

Landlord Terry Johnson said: “It is a fun bike ride rather than a race and Batman and Robin certainly made everyone smile this year.

“There was a great atmosphere in the pub both before and after the event.”

The event has raised more than £30,000 since it was first set up – enough to fund an at-home nurse for a year.
