More cyclists are being sought to take part in this year's Holkham sponsored cycle ride in aid of the Norfolk and Waveney Big C cancer charity.

The 23rd annual event is being staged on October 5 and so far more than 170 people have registered to take part.

The ride will be held from 10am until 4pm and cyclists are welcome to complete the six mile course around the magnificent Holkham Hall Estate as many time as they like. The route offers wonderful views of the hall, lake and grounds.

Last year's ride raised £15,000 for the Big C Appeal to help fund cancer equipment, cancer care and world-class research. All money raised is dedicated to supporting those affected by cancer in Norfolk and Waveney.

The event is open to teams, families and individuals of all abilities with no age limit. Pre-bookable bike hire is available together with refreshments on the day.

First aid will be provided on site and along the route and dogs are allowed provided they are kept on leads.

Following the ride, awards are presented to the team, youth and individual who raised the most sponsorship.

Les Cologne community fundraising manager said : “I fee that the tranquil and picturesque surroundings of the Holkham Hall Estate makes a perfect venue for the forthcoming Cycle Ride to be held on October 5. I am sure the route will prove a pleasurable ride for all participants regardless of their levels of ability.”
