There's still time to saddle up and take on the UK Wide Cycle Ride this September.

Diabetes UK is looking for people from Wiltshire to complete one of four routes in a month to raise funds for the charity.

Beginners may want to tackle the120-mile route – the equivalent of Dundee to Fort William. Experienced cyclists who are after a challenge may prefer to complete the 950-mile route which is the equivalent of Land’s End to John O’Groats.

There are an estimated 4.7 million people living with diabetes in the UK − a condition where there is too much glucose in the blood because the body cannot use it properly. If not managed carefully, both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can lead to devastating complications, including sight loss, amputation, kidney failure and stroke. There is currently no known cure for any type of diabetes.

Phaedra Perry, regional head diabetes UK South West, said: “Cycling is a fantastic way to help you get fit and healthy, have fun and set yourself a challenge. Whether you’re a novice in the saddle or a cycling fanatic, our team will be on hand to offer cycling tips and fundraising advice.

“Every mile you complete and every pound you raise brings us closer to our vision of a world where diabetes can do no harm. Sign up and get pedalling - your support can change lives!”
