Cyclists are being invited to saddle up for this year’s Lake Vyrnwy Bikeathon which is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
The event, which will take place on May 14, traditionally attracts hundreds of cyclists for the 26-mile event in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, and this year is hoping to take the total money raised during the 20 years to more than £200,000.
Organisers of the Bikeathon are urging cyclists young and old to get in touch and sign up for the 2017 and raise money for the worthy cause.
Joint organiser, Lyn Evans, of the Mid Wales Branch of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research – now known as Bloodwise said: “We hope that cyclists turn out in their usual numbers and help raise money for this worthy cause.
“Entrants can not only help raise money for a wonderful cause but enjoy the stunning views of Lake Vyrnwy. Riders can choose the 13.5-mile route or go for the full 26 miles. Registration is at Llanwddyn the community centre. So come along for an outdoor adventure and help raise money to beat blood cancer.”
Anyone wanting to take part in the Bikeathon, which starts at 10am on May 14, can enter using the charity’s website beatbloodcancers.org.uk/bikeathon or call local organiser – Lyn Evans 01686 420648.
