Registration is now open for Bury Goes Biking on Sunday, September 29, from 10am to 2pm.

The free event comes after the success of the first ever closed road cycle event in the town last year, and will once again offer the chance for all cyclists to ride on traffic-free roads.

It is being organised by Abbeycroft Leisure with funding from Bury St Edmunds Town Council and support from West Suffolk Council, Suffolk County Council, Bury Sport and West Suffolk Wheelers.

St Nicholas Hospice Care is the charity partner and riders are encouraged to donate or fundraise for them, but there is no charge to take part in or register for the event.

Warren Smyth, Abbeycroft Leisure's chief executive, said: "It's been a busy summer for us with many great cycling events including the Women's Tour, Women on Wheels Bury and Sudbury.
