On your bikes!

I am urging your readers to make the most of the great British scenery by saddling up for one of the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) city to coast bike rides

The city to coast bike rides, which are supported by Santander, all raise money for our Mending Broken Hearts Appeal, which funds ground-breaking research that could literally mend broken hearts.

The London to Southampton ride is a beautiful yet challenging cycle taking in 84 miles of bustling London streets, idyllic country villages and stunning coastal views.

Taking place on Saturday 8 September, this ride is the perfect challenge for intermediate and experienced riders alike.
