Cycling enthusiasts are being urged to saddle up to support the Brain Tumour Research and Support across Yorkshire.

The charity’s popular Big Bike Ride will be rolling back to Wetherby on May 21 and will follow a circular route from the rugby club with options of a 35 or 64 mile distance.

“We know that the ride attracts people of all cycling capabilities, from the enthusiast to the elite, and we want to make sure that we continue to cater for each and every one of our riders,” said Caroline Ormiston, Fundraising Support Co-ordinator.

“And we are looking for volunteers to support our event.”

Entry onto the event costs £20 and includes a map, refreshment, cycle repairs, showers, first aid, bag storage, rider number.

“We know that for many of you, taking on a 35 or 64 mile cycling challenge is a huge accomplishment, which is why we are now offering the choice of a Gold Entry package for £30. This package also includes a finisher’s medal and food ticket.”

Brain tumours have recently overtaken leukaemia as the most common malignancy and cause of death in children.

Anyone interested in volunteering for the Wetherby event should phone Caroline on 0113 2473766.
