BLUEBELL Wood has just eight left places for keen amateur cyclists to take part in the Tour de Yorkshire Ride.

The event takes place in Fox Valley, Sheffield, just before the last leg of the Tour De Yorkshire 2017 on Sunday, April 30.

It allows amateurs the chance to ride the same roads as the professionals, including crossing the finish line in front of supporting crowds.

Bluebell Wood has places on the 75km and 45km routes left and Jo Berry, events fundraiser at the North Anston children’s hospice, said: “This is a brilliant opportunity for cycling fans to ride the same roads as the pros.”

Daniel Taylor, from Penistone, will take part in memory of brother Jonathan Williams, who died at Bluebell Wood in 2015. He said: “Bluebell Wood is a special place for all our family. They took exceptional care of my brother in his last days and looked after the rest of us really well too.

“As a keen bike racer with the last leg of the Tour de Yorkshire almost on my doorstep, the chance to take part in the ride was just too good to pass up.”

To apply for a place, contact Jo at jo.berry@bluebellwood.org or on 01909 517365.

Each place will require a registration fee of £99, or no upfront fee if riders commit to raise a minimum of £150 for Bluebell Wood.
