Here’s a chance to dust off your bicycles and get out on the open road around Louth whilst raising money for a good cause.

A bikeathon is being held in aid of the soon to open Louth and District Hospice on Sunday, June 23, with 10, 30 and 50 mile routes on offer.

The event is being held in conjunction with National Bike Week and each route starts and ends at the Meridian Leisure Centre.

All routes will head to the north and east of Louth, on flat, quiet country roads.

The 10 mile route at 11am will be marshalled and signposted, with the chance for a break at Rushmoor Country Park.

Entrants to the 30 miler will be handed a route sheet at 10am and there is a planned café stop.

For the keener cyclists, the 50 mile route from 9am will offer the biggest test, and has two designated stops.

Entry to the bikeathon is just £5 for adults and under 16s go free.

Entry and sponsorship forms are available at the Hospice bookshop in Aswell Street or at www.louth-hospice.co.uk and can be handed in on the day or sent to timnewbery@btinternet.com.
