The Butterfly Hospice, in Boston, is preparing for its Big Bike Ride fundraiser.

The event will take place on Sunday, September 24, with three distances available for riders.

There is a nine-mile route from Boston to Langrick, a 33-mile route from Lincoln to Boston, and a 66-mile ride from Boston to Lincoln and back. They start at 10.30am, 9.30am, and 8.30am respectively.

Boston Town Football Club ground, in Tattershall Road, serves as the start and finish.

Transport is available at a cost of £2.50 for riders and bikes taking part in the Lincoln to Boston route. Spaces are limited.
