Hop on your bike in aid of Grantham Foodbank

Organisers of a charity cycle ride in aid of Grantham Foodbank have seen a fewer riders sign up this year.

‘Cycle Fest’ is in its third year, and will take place on Saturday.

And it is not too late to get involved – riders are invited to go along on the day and pay £5. Under-18s can take part free of charge.

All proceeds will go to Grantham Foodbank, which provides three days’ nutritionally balanced food parcels for families in financial crisis.

Organiser Phil Cranwell said: “This year’s take up has been very slow; we are well down on riders signed up against last year. The costs of delivering this process have, unfortunately, doubled since last year.

“It will be an enjoyable day, and every £1 raised will put another meal on a local person in crisis’s plate. But it will also help build the ‘more than’ food program to help give our struggling clients the tools to help themselves.”

Riders will start at Belton Garden Centre, and can choose from three routes of 18 miles, 24 miles or 45 miles, starting at 10.30am, 10.15am and 10am respectively.

As well as bikers to take part in the charity event, Phil and his team are appealing for marshalls to help on the day.
