CYCLISTS are being urged to saddle up for a charity tour of the Chiltern hills - and some of the area's pubs.

The Wembley Road Club will be visiting Bucks for their 26th annual charity cycle ride later this month, taking in a 30 mile route around the Chilterns.

They will be raising money for the Thames Valley Adventure Playground - a group for children and adults with special needs - and hoping to smash the £4,000 raised last year.

It starts at The Plough in Winchmore Hill at 10am on Sunday June 29 and goes through the Chalfonts, Gerrards Cross and to Burnham Beeches before a lunch break at the Huntswood Golf Club.

The return journey includes a mid afternoon stop at The Greyhound in Beaconsfield before finishing up back at The Plough.

Riders from Bucks of all ages are being encouraged to get into the saddle and join the Wembley club.

An 'oldies' group - which will include 81-year-old John Goddard - will follow the route at a slower pace. Entrants under 16 are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.

Anyone wishing to take part can contact or 01494 722611. There is no entry fee but riders will either need to raise sponsorship money or sponsor themselves.
