A children’s charity is giving cycling enthusiasts from across Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas the chance to turn their miles into smiles after partnering with Wiggle Flatout in the Fens, cyclo-sportive event.

Hundreds of cyclists of all abilities will take to the roads in a bid to complete the choice of 77, 112 and 152 mile courses and Caudwell Children is inviting participants to sign up now and support their work with disabled children across the region.

The Wiggle Flatout in the Fens is renowned as the longest, flattest single day sportive in Britain and takes in the scenic surroundings of Cambridgeshire in a circuit which starts and ends in Peterborough on Sunday 22nd June 2014.

Places to ride for Caudwell Children in the popular event are available now, with information available via the charity’s website.

Kate Duddell, Challenge Events Manager at Caudwell Children, said: “The Wiggle Flatout in the Fens is a fantastic event for cyclists of all ages and abilities. With well-marked routes and feeding stations situated around the course it gives experienced riders and beginners all the support they need to complete the course.

By combining the ride with fundraising for Caudwell Children, participants are able to challenge themselves while helping change the lives of disabled children living in their community, which is a huge motivation for anyone taking part.”

All funds raised for the charity will be used to provide practical and emotional support for disabled children and their families. The national charity supports thousands of children every year with a range of services designed to help disabled children reach their full potential.

Event organiser, Simon Thomson, from the company, Kilo To Go, said: “The Wiggle Flatout in the Fens is a hugely successful event and one of the highlights of our calendar. The local cycling community has the ability to put smiles on the faces of disabled children by supporting the charity and I hope lots of riders contact us soon, while there are still places available.”
