The people of Norfolk are being urged to dust off their cycling helmets and get pedalling for charity.

The people of Norfolk are being urged to dust off their cycling helmets and get pedalling for charity.

The annual Norwich Bike Ride in aid of the British Heart Foundation (BHF) will be held on Sunday, June 6.

Starting from the grounds of Norwich Cathedral, people can choose from two routes - either 50 or 100 miles.

Both routes head north to Reepham, the 50 mile riders then loop back past Blickling Hall, while the 100-milers head up to the coast and then east, taking in the Broads, before returning to the finish in the cathedral grounds.

It is hoped the event will raise more than £65,000, helping to save and improve the lives of the millions of men, women and children affected by heart disease.

Tacye Blest, regional events organiser, said: “The Norwich Bike Ride is a challenging and popular event, which promises to be a truly memorable day for all who take part.

“We are urging the people of Norfolk to get on their bikes and sign up, all funds raised help ensure the BHF can continue its vital and lifesaving work.”

The entry fee is £17. To register, go to www.bike-events.com
