One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Gloucester: Charity Cycle Ride With Phil Vickery
Ex-Gloucester Rugby player Phil Vickery is urging families to join him 'on their bikes' this Summer to raise money for ill Children in Gloucestershire.
The Rugby World Cup winner was speaking to Heart at the lunch of the first Gloucester Sportive cycle event which aims to see 500 riders ride 50 to 160 kilometres around the Gloucestershire countryside.
It's being organised by the Pied Piper Appeal.
Gloucester’s first serious Sportive will offer three route options of 50km, 100km and 160km heading out from the famous Kingsholm ground into the picturesque countryside to the west of Gloucester before heading into the equally stunning countryside and hilly terrain of the Forest of Dean.
The 50km route offers riders new to the sport or returning to the bike a great introduction whilst the 100km and 160km will be designed to be more challenging.
