THE call has gone out for people to get on their bikes to raise money for a good cause.

Barnardo’s North Wales Bike Ride is back for a third year and the charity wants as many people as possible to join it for the annual 14-mile family-friendly ride.

The ride, from Pensarn to Rhos-on-Sea and back, takes place on Sunday, June 26 and coincides with Bike Week (www.bikeweek.org.uk).

Apart from raising valuable funds this is a great chance to take in beautiful coastline from the safety of the designated cycle path.

The event starts at 10am and entry is £8 per adult but it is free for children who are being asked to raise a minimum of £25 minimum in sponsorship.

A certificate will be given to each rider who completes the course and there are trophies for teams and individuals raising the most money.

To register online or for further details go to www.barnardos.org.uk/northwalesbikeride or follow this link: http://regonline.activeeurope.com/northwalesonyourbikeforbarnardos

Alternatively you can email events@barnardos.org.uk or contact Sarah Jordan on 02920 436268.

A spokesman for Barnardo's said: “Every year we help thousands of children to turn their lives around. But we cannot do it without you.

"Visit www.barnardos.org.uk to find out how you can get involved and show that you believe in children.”
