Calling all Kincardine and Mearns cyclists, the annual Great Stonehaven Bike Ride is due to take place on August 31 with places still available.

The sponsored bike ride, which starts and finishes at Stonehaven Scout Hut, has raised thousands over the years for NESS (North East Sensory Services).

NESS provides services to anyone affected by a sight or hearing loss in one joint Sensory Service.

Cyclists ride 25 miles on what is described as a challenging, but enjoyable circular route around the Mearns countryside with a shorter 11-mile family friendly route also on offer.

Neil Skene, organiser of the Great Stonehaven Bike Ride, told the Leader and Observer: “Sunday, August 31, will be the date for the 2014 Great Stonehaven Bike Ride.

‘‘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 raise much needed funds for North East Sensory Services, a local independent charity supporting blind and deaf people.”

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
