North East Sensory Services are hoping that local cyclists have been inspired to support the Stonehaven Bike Ride by the efforts of Team Scotland at the Commonwealth Games.

The bike ride takes place on Sunday August 31 with organisers hoping that in particular the fantastic double gold won by local visually impaired cyclist Neil Fachie will see more people take part in the Great Stonehaven Bike Ride

Cyclist’s ride 25 miles on what is described as a challenging, but enjoyable circular route around the countryside, with a shorter 11 mile family friendly route on offer.

The sponsored bike ride which starts and finishes at Stonehaven Scout Hut has raised thousands over the years for NESS. NESS provides services to anyone affected by a sight or hearing loss in one joint Sensory Service.

Entries can be made online at www.q-buster.co.uk or entry packs and further information are available from NESS on 0845 27 12345 or email them on info@nesensoryservices.org
