About 500 cyclists are in the last stages of preparation before taking on Two Wheels for Woodlands on Sunday (June 29) – The Hunts Post’s fundraising bike ride that will help cancer patients get new facilities in Huntingdon.
You can also show your support for the Woodlands Cancer Centre at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, which is raising money for an £800,000 extension, by taking part in the traffic-free family ride.
The event, which is organised by The Hunts Post and Wheels in Wheels and supported by St Ives and St Neots cycling clubs, will see cyclists riding 30, 60 or 100 miles around Huntingdonshire to support the centre’s fundraising.
Beginners on the 30-mile ride can take advantage of the ‘ride captains’ on the course, who will mentor and motivate you during the ride, as well as provide help on peloton etiquette, drink breaks and other advice.
