A VILLAGE organisation is on its marks for a race night.

But the Oakworth Community Trust event will feature bicycles, not the traditional horses.

The event – on Saturday, May 4 – will celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire cycle race, which passes through the village the following day.

Tickets for the race night, at Oakworth Village Hall, are available – priced £5, including a pie and peas supper – from oakworthcommunitytrust.org.uk.

Organisers would also like to hear from anyone wishing to sponsor a bicycle, or 'buy' a bike for £3.

Other attractions at the event will include a raffle, and there will be a bar.

"Come and join in the fun – you never know, your 'cycle' might be a winner!" said a spokesman.
