This Sunday will see families and cycling enthusiasts take to the streets to raise money for local charities when Bike Chester returns for the third year.
Individual riders can also nominate their own charity.
Championed by national property developer Redrow Homes, the event starts and end at The King’s School.
Riders can choose from three new routes – the 25-mile social ride tailored to novice cyclists and families or the 50 or 80-mile challenge rides for enthusiasts – that take in the flat roads of Chester before venturing into the rugged mountains of Denbighshire, Wales.
Riders will have the chance to tackle iconic climbs including the Horseshoe Pass while taking in the breath-taking scenery.
Organised by cycling experts Iconic Cycling Events, Bike Chester is growing year on year and attracted nearly 1,000 riders from across the region last year.
The event is fully supported and features food stops and route signs, as well as mechanical support.
Richard Best, CEO of Iconic Cycling Events, said: “Bike Chester is a friendly and inclusive event that has become a firm fixture in the cycling calendar,
“I hope we will see even more cyclists turn out this year to enjoy a fantastic day of cycling and to support some very worthy local charities.”
Entry is £36 per ride for the 80 and 50-mile rides or £26 for the 25-mile ride.
New to 2018 is a family entry for the 25-mile route at £70 for two adults and two children under 16.
