A scenic cycle ride through the Cambridgeshire countryside will raise money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (Each) - and there’s still time to sign up.

Organised by Anglia Ruskin University and sponsored by Ridgeons, the 40-mile Cambridgeshire Cycling Challenge on Saturday August 25 will begin at University Centre in Peterborough and end at Anglia Ruskin’s Cambridge campus in East Road, where a celebration event will be held.

Among those taking part will be event patron Dr Andy Harter, the High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire, who will ride a tandem bicycle with Lily Bacon, a trustee of Each, which has a hospice in Milton. Tandem riders will receive a special gift.

The ride is part of the anniversary celebrations to mark 25 years of university status for Anglia Ruskin.

The university’s vice chancellor, Professor Iain Martin, will also take part.

He said: “Each is a fantastic charity and this is an opportunity to help support the wonderful work they do.

“For Anglia Ruskin, being a central part of the civic life of our region is really important and we look, where we can, to support our local communities. I hope everyone taking part enjoys the ride.”
