Cyclists in Milton Keynes are being asked to get on their bikes to help support a special world record attempt. Breeze champion Sarah Bayaidah is pledging her support for fellow cyclist Sean Conway, who will be attempting to break the world record for cycling solo and unsupported around the world on February 18th and is asking the people of Milton Keynes to step up and do the same.
As well as trying to get into the record books, Sean's trying to raise £100,000 for Solar Aid, a charity that works to combat climate change. In support of his feat, Sarah has organised one of her famous heart-shaped cycle rides around the city on Sunday 12th February. And as she explains, this Social Cycling Group ride is open to everyone:
'Bike rides are fun, local and flexible. This is an ideal way for cyclists in the city, as well as families and aspirant record breakers to come along, enjoy the scenery, meet Sean, and support a worthwhile cause and ambitious record attempt. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be an athlete to complete this ride, it’s only seven miles at a nice steady pace.'
This special off-road heart route will take participants on a relaxing ride around the highlights of Milton Keynes, and promises great views of the city via Campbell Park.
