THE Action 100 Bristol to London city cycle challenge takes place on August 24 and children’s charity Action Medical Research is calling for people to sign up.

This event is part of the charity’s popular Ride100 series of one-day bike rides across the UK. All include chip timing, food and water stations, lunch, marshals and mechanics. Cyclists participating in the Action 100 will be raising money to help fund medical research into conditions affecting babies and children, such as Down syndrome, epilepsy, sickle cell disease and diabetes.
