CYCLISTS will take to the streets, pedalling up support for a children’s charity.

Action Medical Research has opened registrations for this year’s Winchester100 cycle challenge.

The event will see cyclists of all ages and abilities take on one of three routes on September 21 in support of the charity’s research into Down syndrome, epilepsy, sickle cell disease and diabetes.

Riders can choose the 46, 63 or 104-mile routes through Winchester and the New Forest, starting from Sparsholt College.

The challenge is part of the charity’s RIDE100 series of one-day bike rides across the UK.

Participants can enter with a £55 donation or by raising a minimum of £35.
