Cyclists are being urged to saddle up for two South Cheshire rides to help young carers in the county.

The Up and Under Foundation is organising two bike rides on June 9 in a bid to raise cash to take young carers on well-earned breaks.

One of the rides is a gentle cycle to a café in Audlem then a return through Wrenbury, Nantwich.

The second is a more challenging 60 mile ride over lumpier parts of Cheshire, taking in Malpas and Beeston.

Supporters include Mornflake, who are providing breakfast at the start, and Nantwich-based Chatwins will have something special for us at the end.

The group has just returned from a trip to Conway Centre on Anglesey.

Youngsters aged between 8 and 15 and part of the Cheshire Young Carers Group enjoyed much-needed respite.

They took part in tree top rope course, canoeing, camp fires, bushcraft and climbing.

“For many it was their first time away from home on their own and it was an experience they all said they wanted to repeat,” the spokesman added.

“We can make this happen with your help, get on your bikes.”

Closing date for entries May 29. Visit www.foundationrides.co.uk to enter and get helpful advice about preparing for your ride.
