An environmental consultancy raised £1,100 for Seashel Trust students.
The team of six from Manchester-based APEM, which specialises in freshwater and marine ecology, rode in this year's cycle sportive.
They took on the challenging 60-mile route with 7,500 ft of climbing through the Cheshire and Derbyshire countryside.
Richard Bassett, from APEM said: “Seashell Trust is APEM’s adopted charity. We help out in a few different ways, including recently offering work experience. A number of our staff are keen cyclists, including managing director Keith Hendry.
