Organisers are looking for entries for the 2013 Great Stonehaven Bike Ride.
The bike ride will be held on Sunday, September 1.
Organisers say this is an opportunity for North-east families who enjoy cycling as well as seasoned campaigners to see some of the beautiful Mearns countryside and at the same time raising much needed funds for North East Sensory Services (NESS), a local independent charity.
Any money raised for NESS will stay local.
The sponsored bike ride which starts and finishes at Stonehaven Scout Hut has raised thousands over the years for NESS who were formally known as Grampian Society for the blind.
NESS now provides services to Deaf and Hard of Hearing people as well as continuing to assist the Blind and partially sighted in one service.
