Get 'On Your Bike' & join in the fun

ORGANISERS of this year?s On Your Bike hope to make it the biggest to date

ORGANISERS of this year?s On Your Bike hope to make it the biggest to date.

The ninth annual charity cycle ride will take place on Sunday, April 26, starting and finishing at Sonning Common Primary School.

The proceeds will be split between the school and the Royal Berkshire Hospital Charity, which is raising money for an orthopedic unit.

At the launch of the event on Wednesday, Angela Lee, a nurse consultant at the hospital, spoke to pupils at a special assembly.

She said: ?We treat 10,000 children every year. We want them all to have a nicer, friendlier looking clinic, where children can be children.?

She showed a video of a skeleton dancing and singing about how the ?Knee bone?s connected to the thigh bone?? and the children sang along and joined in the actions.

Jason Acock, from AW Cycles in Caversham, took along a bike that anyone who registers to take part in On Your Bike before April 12 will have a chance of winning.

Cyclists can choose to ride six, 12 or 20 miles. For children who are not yet confident enough to cycle on roads there is a playground cycle.

Since the event started in 2007 it has raised more than £25,000 for various charities.

Entry is £5 before the event or £7 on the day. The playground cycle costs £2.
