Scores of cyclists have put their names forward to take part in this year’s On Yer Bike fundraiser.

More than 100 have entered so far in the event, which takes place on Sunday, April 26.

The fundraiser, which runs every April, and is in its 27th year, is run by St Leonards Rotary Club.

Recently club president George Mighall visited Handsome Bicycles, together with On Yer Bike organiser John Easter, for the presentation of a new bike by Steve Toulson, partner at sponsors Deeks Evans to David Harrington from Hastings. David’s name was drawn from all those entrants in the 2014 event who paid their sponsorship money into the Rotary Charity Bank Account.

On Yer Bike, also known as the Castle Cycle Challenge, starts and finishes at the RNLI lifeboat station. Cyclists have the choice of a 25-mile route to Pevensey Castle and return. Or they can tackle the more strenuous 40-mile route which proceeds from Pevensey Castle to Herstmonceux Castle and returns along the Rickney Marsh road.

Last year hundreds of cyclists got on their saddles to take part in On Yer Bike. More than 500 turned up at the start to pedal along the two routes, raising money for good causes.

Entry to On Yer Bike costs £10 (minimum) for adults, and £3 for under 16s. To enter go to www.stleonardsrotary.org or entry forms are available from Handsome Bicycles in Harold Place or other cycle shops.
