Chief executive of Headway John Archer said: "Together we're aiming to raise as much as we can for Headway Hertfordshire who help people recovering from a brain injury and also support their carers and close family.

"The event will be full of energy and fun and is open to anyone over the age of 16 who can cycle for an hour."

The spinathon is being organised by St Albans residents Marian and James Ferguson on the back of their recent headshave for the charity, which raised £10,000. James is the survivor of a road traffic accident which occurred while he was training for a Land's End to John O'Groats bike ride in 2015.

There is a sign up fee of £25 an hour and places can be booked by calling 07870 236 931 before Wednesday, February 26.
