MANORLANDS is urging people to saddle up and go Dutch.

The Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice is staging a London to Amsterdam bike ride to raise funds.

About 10 places remain on the 355-mile challenge.

The cyclists will set off on October 8 and at the finish will enjoy a celebratory drink on the Amstel River.

Manorlands fundraiser Harriet Bevan said: "The picturesque journey will take over four days and raise crucial funds for the hospice.

"The money will go towards expert specialist care, so every person that signs-up really does count.

"We would urge people not to miss this amazing opportunity.

"There will be a dedicated support team for participants every pedal of the way."

Registration for the event is £75 and each cyclist has a £1,200 sponsorship target.

Food and accommodation, a ferry crossing at Dover and return travel from London by Eurostar are included.

Participants have to fund their own travel costs to London for the start and the return journey from the capital afterwards.
