It is not the Knievels first visit to Wrexham - they set the world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Evel Knievel in the town in 2019.

The group has raised £135,000 and counting for charity since 2012.

A spokesperson for group said: "2021 is our 10th year and will see Cymru Knievels and the ‘power of the cape’ not allow Covid to hamper their charity fundraising as we again help Macmillan Cancer Support.
