Boston's Butterfly Hospice prepares for fifth annual Big Bike Ride
BOSTON'S Butterfly Hospice is once again asking people to get on their bikes for the fifth annual Big Bike Ride next month.
Participants can choose between the nine mile cycle from Langrick to Boston or the more challenging 33 mile ride from Lincoln to Boston on April 28.
The event is to raise money for the Butterfly Hospice.
Organisers Davina Hellon and Jenny Piper said the day will be enjoyed by all.
Davina said: "Last year our wonderful supporters helped us to raise a fantastic amount for the charity.
"Everyone's contributions enabled us to progress our work to provide a local hospice within our local community for the benefit of local people.
"Whether you want a scenic leisurely bike ride with family and friends or to test yourself like Bradley Wiggins, it is a great day for everyone culminating with lots to eat, drink and do at the Boston Town Football Club Ground, off Tattershall Road, Boston adjacent to Witham County Park."
This year's event starts and finishes at Boston Town Football Club ground, which has pledged to provide entertainment when the cyclists return and the use of their facilities.
Jennie added: "I can't wait and I'm confident that a fun spring day will be had by all."
In addition, this year the Boston community policing team will be on hand to give advice on cycle safety and security.
Cyclists will be able to get their bikes security tagged at a reduced rate of £2 on the day.
