South Cheshire-based Up and Under Foundation is to stage the 2014 Foundation Rides in aid of disadvantaged youngsters.

Cyclist and businesses from around Nantwich and Crewe will join together on June 8 for the fund-raiser.

Riders as young as 1o are set to enter, and 15-year-old scout John O’ Connor will be hoping to repeat his result from last year when he was the youngest rider to complete the 100km loop.

Equal numbers of riders have entered for the two rides – the 100km “Good Stuff” ride and the more challenging 100-mile “Tough Stuff”.

This leaves Cheshire briefly to scale the Horseshoe Pass in North Wales.

Entries for the event will close on May 28, so if you want to be part of this exciting event you will need to enter soon.

All money raised by this event, which is organised by volunteers and staff members from the Up and Under Group, will go to supporting disadvantaged local young people so they can take part in adventures and activities.

Organiser Andy Fewtrell said: “We hope all riders will try to raise some extra money for the Foundation and to help this we have kept entry prices low for this type of event, starting at only £9.50 for the 50km.

“There is fantastic support from the local business community with involvement currently from LSTF, Morning foods, Chatwins, CTC Physiotherapy, Wrights, Cheerbrooks, Barclays, Royal Mail, Hewden Hire, and Jones Sheridan already confirmed.

“For local companies this provides an excellent opportunity for building team spirit and staff fitness!”
