Lynn Samaritans are hoping that this year’sannual bike ride will be bigger and even better.

Last year, 200 riders raised £5,000 from the event, which starts at the Visitor Centre, at Sandringham, on Sunday.

Registration will start at 9.30am with pedals being pushed 30 minutes later.

The bike ride is 14 miles long, although there is a shorter eight-mile route ideal for younger riders or those of us who have not been on a bike for a while.

Sir Henry Bellingham, a great supporter of the group, will be in charge of the start and will also select the winners of the fancy dress competition with this year’s theme is historical (hysterical) figures, although this is not compulsory.

Last year’s defending champions Team Lemon, who created a witches cauldron on four wheels complete with smoke, have already teased the organisers with the promise of something really special for this year.

Entry is free, as are refreshments, while every rider will receive a medal and youngsters a certificate, if they would like one.
