Here's an opportunity for the whole family to get on yer' bikes and start cycling!
2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the annual Wetherby Cycle Ride! The event starts at 10:30am on Sunday 4th June 2017 at Wetherby High School and will be raising money for Cancer Research UK.
This popular event offers a rewarding and enjoyable morning in the heart of Wetherby, one of Yorkshire's beautiful towns. Two routes are offered: 20 miles and 30 miles, designed for all cyclists and familes and is open to adults and children from the age of 12 years.
The ride itself is great fun, and an enjoyable morning for all, back in time for Sunday lunch and supporting a great cause. Don't worry if you're not the fastest cyclist, just make sure you have fun!
