A GROUP of cyclists are to attempt a 100km ride in aid of a Henley charity.

They will set off from Henley Town Hall at 10am next Saturday (September 12) and ride through the South Oxfordshire countryside, including Christmas Common, Ewelme, Nettlebed and Stoke Row, twice during the day. The riders are raising money for youth and community group Nomad, which is based at the d:two centre in Upper Market Place.

About 30 cyclists have already signed up but it is hoped to have about 100 by the day itself.

Tim Prior, Nomad?s youth and family team manager, who will be taking part, said: ?It?s a really great initiative and we?re thrilled to be part of it. I have never cycled that distance so it will be a personal challenge for me.

Initiatives like this are a great way of increasing our profile as well as raising money so we can carry on our valuable work.?

Chris Ward, a member of Nomad?s advisory group and an experienced cyclist, said: ?It has given me a bit of a goal to get out on the bike two or three times a week.? The event is being sponsored by Mr Ward?s company Ward Connections and estate agents Ballards.

If you would like to take part, send an email to Mr Prior at tim@nomadhenley.co.uk
