Saddle up for hospice

CYCLISTS are being encouraged to sign up for the area’s biggest charity bike ride, the Tour de Bristol.

The event in aid of St Peter’s Hospice, challenges riders to take on one of three different routes – 40km, 65km or 100km – across Bristol and South Gloucestershire, all starting at UWE’s Centre for Sport at the university’s Frenchay campus on April 13.

Cyclists can also take on a virtual challenge by choosing a route and date to suit themselves.

St Peter’s Hospice fundraising manager Hayley Ali said: “It’s the Hospice’s largest event and an incredible day of fundraising, with cyclists of all ages and abilities coming together from across Bristol and beyond.
