Cyclists belonging to the Morden based Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC) returned home victorious after completing a 600-mile cycle ride from Glasgow to London.

The group of 25 set off from the Bait-ul-Rehman Mosque in Glasgow on Sunday, June 1 at 7am for the seven-day Ride4Peace, organised to mark 100 years of the AMC in the UK.

After combating challenging terrain, from the slopes of the Peak District to part of this year's Tour de France route in Sheffield, they made it back to south London for a victory parade between Southfields and Morden.

The cyclists, who have raised £100,000 for the British Heart Foundation and Humanity First, were joined by about 20 police officers for the final leg between Southfields Mosque and the Bait-ul-Futuh Mosque in London Road, Morden.

More than 500 supporters, including Mayor of Merton Agatha Akyigyina and MP Siobhain McDonagh, cheered the exhausted sportsmen upon their triumphant return to Morden at 12.30pm on Saturday, June 7.
