A day of retro cycling and a jamboree will come to Long Ashton next month.

The Gert Lush will take place on May 19, meeting at the community centre, in Keedwell Hill, from 9am-5.30pm.

The family-friendly festival is open to both vintage riders and those who want to try a longer excursion into the countryside.

A free, accompanied four-mile ride for kids will take place, plus a 34-mile jaunt and a 65-mile route across the Chew Valley to Cheddar Gorge are also on offer.

For non-cyclists, a vintage jamboree will run from 1-5.30pm at the centre.

Riders will be serenaded by The Barley Rye Choir and a tango dancing troop.

Beer from Stroud Brewery will quench the thirst and cream teas, ice creams and hot foods will be served up after the ride.
