Women are being encouraged to saddle up to support local good causes.

The annual Women on Wheels event will take place on July 2 in Southwold and aims to encourage women to enjoy cycling and bring the community together.

Cyclists can choose from a seven, 18 or 30-mile route with registration fees of £5 for the shortest distance and £10 for the other two.

All profits from the female-only ride go to the Southwold Sole Bay Lions charitable organisation.

Eight to 16-year-olds can take part for free when accompanied by an adult.

Registration will open this month by picking up a registration form from Barbrook's Stores in Reydon, Southwold Post Office or Southwold Library. They can be returned with cash or a cheque to Southwold Town Hall. Cycle helmets must be worn and bikes must be roadworthy. All routes will depart from the William Godell Sports Pavilion on Southwold Common.
