A Sudbury leisure centre is offering women the chance to get involved in a cycling event, while helping to support a local charity at the same time.

With both the Men’s Tour of Britain and the Friends Life Women’s Tour set to return to Suffolk, and this being the county’s year of cycling, South Suffolk Leisure, which runs Sudbury’s Kingfisher Leisure Centre, has organised a Women on Wheels charity cycle ride.

The ride will take place on September 20, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Registration is now open and participants can choose a route of five, 20 or 50 miles, starting at AFC Sudbury and passing through countryside and cycle paths around Sudbury and its surrounding villages.

The ride will be fully marshalled and signed and is open to all abilities aged eight and over.

Tracey Loynds, chief executive of South Suffolk Leisure, said: “Whether you are a mum, daughter, sister, aunt or gran, the WoW Sudbury cycle is the reason you should dust the cobwebs from your bikes and get cycling.”
