A group of cyclists is organising a 30-mile ride to raise money for Weston Hospicecare.

The Wedmore 40-30 Cycle Ride will take place on June 17.

It will give riders the opportunity to tackle a medium route of 40 miles which will head from Wedmore through Cheddar Gorge and across the Mendip Hills.

Alternatively an easier 30-mile course will be offered across the Somerset Levels while riders feeling particularly brave can attempt both in a combined 70-mile route.

All three rides will start and end at the village playing fields in Blackford Road.

Money raised from the event will also go towards supporting the Friends of St Mary’s Church.

The shorter route will start at 10am while the longer course will begin at 9am.

Registration, priced £25, can be completed online at
