Take part in last leg of Mayor of Hertsmere's cycle ride
Cyclists are encouraged to get their wheels in motion and join in with the last leg of the Mayor of Hertsmere’s cycle ride.
People from all across the borough will cycle from Paris to London to raise money for the Ben Kinsella Trust and Jewish charity Langdon.
On the last day of their trip, people can meet the cyclists at the Houses of Parliament and pedal their way back to Borehamwood.
Mayor Councillor Paul Morris said: “It should be a splendid weekend. We’ve had a tremendous amount of support for this so far.
“It’s a very interesting route so it should be a lot of fun – and we’ve got a great group of people taking part this year.
“We’ve already raised thousands and are hoping that continues.”
Cyclists will ride to Borehamwood’s twin town of Fontenay-aux-Roses, on the outskirts of Paris.
However, after a recent hip replacement Cllr Morris has decided it would be too risky to take part – but still plans to enjoy the festivities.
Celebrities taking part include EastEnders actors, Brooke Kinsella herself and pop singer Lemar.
The ride will start on May 2, and when the group arrive back on May 5 they will be welcomed with a party and a fanfare at the civic offices, in Elstree Way.
