The eighth annual On Your Bike event takes place on Sunday, the informal family cycle ride exploring the leafy lanes of South Oxfordshire. Marshalled routes of six, 12 and 20 miles are offered with a supervised playground cycle for youngsters. The event was first staged in 2007 and has raised more than £15,000 for charity. Sponsors include Higgs Group and the Henley Standard, together with Beville estate agents — so this week we are focusing on properties for sale in Sonning Common.
