A charity cycle event is hoping to build on its previous successes to raise even more money for charity at this year's outing.

Cycle Snetterton Race Circuit, taking place on Friday, May 20, will see cyclists of all abilities take to the race track to raise money for Each Anglia's Children's Hospices' Nook Appeal.

Organised by TJ Motorsport, it will start at 5.30pm and run for around two and half hours, and is open to anyone with a bicycle.

Now in its third year, the event has so far raised more than £10,000 for the appeal, with over 400 cyclists taking part last year and raising in excess of £8,000.

The ride can accommodate everyone from family groups who want to enjoy a gentle ride, to elite cyclists trying to crack a new lap record on one of the UK's top motorsport venues.

Each participant is asked for a minimum donation of £10. Full refreshments will be available at Tyrells Restaurant at the circuit, and a photographer will be in attendance.
