A TIRED looking team of cyclists embarking on a length-of-the-country bike ride reached its midway point yesterday – with a short stop at a Ripley chocolate store.

The Thornton’s Cycle 100 charity challenge passed through the town on Wednesday. The team, who all work at the Somercotes-based chocolatier, are in the middle of a cycle ride from John O’Groats to Lands End, visiting 100 Thornton’s stores along the way
