CYCLISTS from across 1066 Country will be getting on their bikes and peddling for good causes next Sunday (April 27).

More than 200 have signed up for this year’s On Yer Bike, organised by St Leonards rotary Club.

Ray Howard, spokesman for the club, said places are still available and encouraged people to join.

He said: “We would like a few more teams entering this year, as we have so few taking part. Teams can be four persons or more.

“So far just over 200 people have signed up which is just a few more compared to this time last year.

“In the last two years people have left it until the Sunday and joined on the day, mainly because of the terrible weather we had in 2012.”

This year’s On Yer Bike event, 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 can tackle the more strenuous 40-mile route which proceeds from Pevensey Castle to Herstmonceux Castle and returns along the Rickney Marsh road.

Entry costs £10 (minimum) for adults, and £3 for under 16s.

Last year more than 450 got on their saddles for charity, which was more than twice the number at 2012’s On Yer Bike challenge. Entries can now be registered at
