CYCLISTS are invited to take part in a 62-mile ride from the city to the seaside to raise funds for local people with life-ending illnesses.

Wigan and Leigh Hospice’s annual ride from Manchester to Blackpool takes place on Sunday, July 7th.

Cyclists get free refreshments including pies, pasties, sandwiches and chocolate as well as a free t-shirt and transport to Manchester then back again from Blackpool.

Christine Edwardson, Community Fundraiser, said: “There’s always a fantastic atmosphere at the bike ride which is why people come again and again. We really look after you and you’ll be helping to support and care for local people with a life-limiting illness.

“The sponsorship raised by supporters including our bike riders helped the hospice care for 1,187 local people with a life-limiting illness in 2018.”
