Children are being encouraged to give cycling a try at an event organised as part of a charity ride next month.

Hundreds of people are expected to take to Norfolk’s roads for Cycle Together Sandringham, which starts and finishes in the grounds of the Park House Hotel, on Sunday, June 12.

And, during the day, members of the King’s Lynn Cycle Club will offer a range of Go Ride experiences, as part of British Cycling’s drive to bring children into the sport.

Ray Barnett, from the club, who will be leading the sessions, said: “Getting involved is easy – and we’ll have bikes available for you to use.

“Just come along and sample different cycling disciplines, and enjoy one of the fastest growing sports in the UK today.”

Organisers are also planning a fete at Park House alongside the ride, which will see participants tackle routes of 10, 20, 50 and 100 miles.

Jasmine Monk, of Leonard Cheshire Disability’s events team, said: “We are so grateful to so many local supporters, and Kings Lynn Cycling Club, for making this event even more inclusive.

“In its past three years, Cycle Together has raised more than £50,000 for the hotel, but has also given people a lovely day out.

“This year we are hoping to raise enough money to buy a specialist vehicle that can carry two disabled guests and their carers.

“It is a fun and exciting way of taking part in a day to remember for a worthy local cause.”
