Accountants, estate agents and fitness fans got in a spin for charity when they took to exercise bikes for 24 hours to raise money for the Bag4Sport Foundation.
Charlton Baker accountants and Strakers estate agents fielded a joint team at Route2Fitness gym and raised £1,005.
Both Devizes firms are long-term supporters of the charity which raises money for grass roots sport.
Route2Fitness also put out a team for the spinathon and raised £600. The team of fitness fans led by gym manager Nick Holmes also won the trophy for covering the most miles.
Trainee accountant Emily Young said: “I was a bit sore by the time I finished. I went back on the bike for a second stint about 4pm and I could have done with a pillow.”
Lewis Bulley of Strakers said: “The spinathon was a brilliant event for us to be involved in with the teamwork creating a great atmosphere of encouragement, also some healthy competition between members of our own group!”
