On Sunday 18th August some 400 cyclists enjoyed the extended summer weather by taking part in the second Lutterworth Big Bike Ride organised by Lutterworth Rotary Club.

Four routes were on offer, all setting off from Misterton Hall, courtesy of Mrs Heather Craven, and covering 11, 23, 39 or 62 miles. Some 250 riders each completed at least 39 miles & 124 tackled the challenging 62 mile route around South Leicestershire & North Northants including one entrant on a unicycle who, despite being last back, did complete the 62 miles in just over six hours. After their exertions the riders enjoyed a hog roast from Neil Green Catering whilst enjoying the
sunshine in the delightful grounds of Misterton Hall.

Monies raised from the event will go to Epilepsy Action and to  a range of other charities supported by the club. President David Toone said 'It was a wonderful community event in a lovely setting and particular thanks are due to Mrs Heather Craven and whoever managed to organise the weather.
