THE cycle-tour organiser Bike 1 (0252 624022) is running two rides to raise funds for Sustrans, the railway, path and cycle-route construction charity: on 20 June, the Great Northern Sustrans Ride near York; and on 15 August, the Great Southern Sustrans Ride in Sussex. Registration for the rides, which range from 30 to 50 miles in length, costs pounds 8.50, and participants are asked to raise sponsorship to help Sustrans complete the 1,000-mile Dover to Inverness National Cycle Route.
