Wheels are turning to get disadvantaged children in South Holland riding a bike of their own – thanks to the town’s new exciting cycling event Spalding Velo Prix.

Organisers are urging people to take their unwanted children’s bikes down to Monkshouse Playing Field during the cycle festival on Saturday, May 2.

The bikes will then be refurbished by ‘Dr Bike’ Mike Catterson, of Village Cycles, before being distributed to disadvantaged children in the community.

People can drop their bikes off between 10am 2pm on the Saturday and the Bikeability team will then take them back up to Lincoln for the refurbishment.

There’s lots of other fun events taking place on the Saturday at Monkshouse Playing Field, alongside the Spalding Cycle Club events.

These include a Bikeability taster sessions for parents and children (people will need to bring their own bikes), Balance Bikes for the younger children, Dr Bike (health checks for your bike), Smoothie Bike (pedal your way to your own smoothie), Bling Your Bike, Immobitagging and much more.

If you know a child who would benefit from being given a refurbished bicycle, email Philip.Watt@lincolnshire.gov.uk
