East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) launched their annual Ride for your Lives fundraising event on Tuesday, February 24 at Orton Hall Hotel and Spa.

The cycle event will be held at the scenic Ferry Meadows Country Park in Peterborough on June 28.

EAAA is launching an appeal for cyclists to take part in the 15km bike ride to celebrate the charity’s 15th anniversary this year.

The course is split between tarmac tracks and off-road gravel paths and is easily manageable for riders of all abilities.

The course will be marshalled along its length with complimentary water and energy bars given to those taking part.

Registration costs £10 for an individual or £20 per family, and participants will be encouraged to raise vital funds for the charity through sponsorship.

Area fundraising manager Chris Donaldson said: “We are delighted to bring this successful annual event to Peterborough making it accessible to as many people as possible.”

“I will certainly be riding alongside our supporters as we try to boost our funds and help the charity’s essential emergency work throughout the region.”

Registration opens on Monday March 2 on the EAAA website
