FUNDRAISING cyclists can now sport a specially-designed jersey when they take to the saddle in aid of Manorlands.

The top, sponsored by All Terrain Cycles, has been produced in the Sue Ryder colours.

All profits from sales will go to the Oxenhope hospice.

The jersey has been created by the Manorlands cycle events group, set-up three months ago.

Treasurer Lee Orviss said: "The jerseys cost just £35 and look superb – we've already had a lot of interest in them.

"We hope to see lots of riders out and about in them at the big cycling events of the summer."

Andrew Wood, community fundraising manager at Manorlands, said: "We are very grateful to our cycling events group.

"It is providing a breath of fresh air to our cycling offering and we are looking for more keen members to join them."

The hospice's next bike fundraiser runs throughout next month.

Participants in 240 or Bust are challenged to pedal as far as possible from Manorlands on a set route, but must be back within four hours.

People can choose when – and how often – they take part.

"Entrants can complete their ride – as individuals or teams – at any time during daylight hours in June," said Mr Wood.

"It is open to anyone, of any ability, who has a bike.

"It is the participant's own choice as to where they turn around, in the knowledge they must be back at the start point within 240 minutes.

"It's a personal challenge to see how far you can ride in the four-hour timeframe, whether it is eight miles or 80. It's just about having a go and getting your name on our scoreboard.

"Entry is as cheap as anything, at £10 per attempt. And there will be hidden 'treasure' along the route."

All times will be recorded on Strava, a website and mobile app used to track athletic activity via GPS.
