The annual ride will take riders through the Herts countryside and is to raise money for three different causes - Macmillan Nurses, Medical Detection Dogs and The Daylight Club in St Albans.

The ride offers four different routes, which range between 10 and 40 miles, and it begins at Oaklands College in Hatfield Road.

Norman Fennell, secretary of the Charity Cycle Ride, said: “Obviously we hope to raise as much as possible.

“We usually raise between £25,000 - £35,000 per year and altogether we have raised over half a million pounds in the 21 years we have been running the event.

“We are hoping for a sunny day and many people to come and enjoy themselves.”

Those taking part will be given a SACCR T-shirt and a rider number bib and are expected to check in before 10.30am.

Cyclists can register online to enter the event or sign up on the day. For more information click here.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
