Organisers already have their first entrant signed up, with the Right Reverend Dr John Thomson, Bishop of Selby, taking the number one ticket.

There are two different distances a 45-mile ride and a shorter distance of 25 miles can also be completed. Last year, more than 900 riders from all over Yorkshire and further afield took part in the event.

This year’s ride is the 29th and since its start it has raised £275,000 for local charities. This year’s recipients will be St Leonards Hospice, Martin House Children’s Hospice, the British Heart Foundation and The Friends of Selby War Memorial Hospital.

David Jones, of Selby Lions Club which organises the event each year, said: “It is great to have such an eminent rider as the Bishop in the event.”
