After riding more than 1,000 miles along a route which took in the capital cities of the United Kingdom and Ireland, the Life Cycle 3 team were welcomed back to University Park.
Hundreds of well-wishers turned out to cheer on the 12-strong team as part of a community day to mark the end of the challenge.
Cyclists joined the final stage by taking part in a 55-mile ride from Leicestershire, whereas less experienced riders tackled a shorter route from Lakeside Arts Centre.
These sponsored community rides further boosted Life Cycle 3’s pledge to raise £300,000 in support of Stroke Rehabilitation Research.
The crowds also enjoyed live music, a barbecue, cycle challenges and a chance to find out more about the University’s research, which helps stroke survivors after they leave hospital.
The Life Cycle team were again led by Vice Chancellor Professor David Greenaway, who wrote a daily blog during the ride.
His closing post reads: “What a wonderful day. We knew finishing in Nottingham would be something special, but none of us anticipated just how special.”
