Cycling fans are invited to saddle up for a charity ride in aid of three good causes.

The Bromswold Bike Fest on Saturday, June 14 features a choice of routes, all starting and finishing at The Green Man pub in Leighton Bromswold.

Circuits totalling two, seven, 15, 25 and 50 miles have been mapped out to attract novices, families and keen cyclists, with varying start times.

Back at the pub, there will 
also be live music including jazz and a blues band, fete-style games and a raffle with a top prize of £500 cash.

The charities to benefit will be Macmillan Cancer Support, Samuel Pepys School in St Neots and children’s charity Dreamdrops.

Funding for the ride has been provided with a cycle legacy grant from Cambridgeshire County Council and sponsorship from estate agent Peter Lane & Partners and Rutland Cycling.
