Cyclists are being urged to saddle up in aid of the Suffolk Sunrise cycle challenge when it returns this spring.

The event, on May 19, is in aid of children’s charity Action Medical Research and offers three routes which all start and finish at Framlingham College.

The Cool route is 42 miles, the Classic is 65 miles and the Champion is 102 miles.

All will have feed stations across the three routes, in Little Bealings, Fressingfield, Peasenhall and Holton.

A spokesman said: “Cyclists participating in the Suffolk Sunrise will be raising money to help fund medical research into conditions affecting babies and children.

“We encourage all our riders to fundraise a minimum of £100 for Action Medical Research.”

This event is part of the charity’s popular RIDE100 series of one-day bike rides that take place across the country,
