Cycling fans in Highgate gathered at the All About You Fitness Studio today to take part in the 'Ride to make a difference Spin-athon.' The event was raising money to benefit local children supported by the Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation.
The foundation was set up after the tragic death of 17 year old Alexandra who died of cancer in 2010.
The local cyclists were joined by former EastEnders star Michelle Collins, who is a patron of the Foundation. Michelle's daughter, Maia went to school with Alexandra in North London and she now lends her support to Alexandra's mum, Lindsey to keep memories of her daughter alive.
Allie's mother, Lindsey Wylie said:
"We hope to get as many people as possible to sign up for this challenge.
Working in partnership with Camila Batmanghelidj's Kids Company, we will
continue to develop the food parcel programmes for children living in
our area who are going to bed hungry"

A school in Highgate has been taken over by squatters, in a midst of a row between the Council and an education trust. Council officials want to turn the former Ashmount Primary School into social housing.
But they're facing opposition from an organisation that wants to convert it to a free school. So it remained empty until the squatter moved in as Luke Hanrahan reports.
RSPCA Inspector Leigh Summers told ITV London how he caught the wallaby.
The RSPCA was called out this morning to catch one of the Wallabies living in Highgate Cemetery which was reported to be "causing chaos" on York Rise near Kentish Town.
On advice from London Zoo, RSPCA Inspector Leigh Summers had gone armed with a tennis net to wrap the wallaby in. He said:
“I had been told to handle the wallaby by grasping its tail and hold it as high as I could off the ground and as far away from me as possible to stop it finding any purchase for its legs.
In fact, when I did grasp it the animal just hung there, relaxed, verymuch like a cat does when it is scruffed by its mother so I knew it was used tobeing handled like this.
Thebiggest problem I had was untangling the netting around it when I got it back to the van.”
The mystery of the unidentified beast of Highgate appears to have been solved. A week ago, a dog walker reported seeing a strange creature in the famous cemetery. Now, ITV News can reveal what's been lurking there. A wallaby, finally caught on camera yesterday.
