Ludlow bike festival returns 

Ashley Green, a local cancer survivor, is hosting the fifth Ludlow Cycling Festival to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The event is set to take place on Sunday 16 September, with serious riders starting 40/60/106k rides at 8.20am. There are also shorter rides, with an 11k family ride winding through the peaceful lanes of the Plymouth Estate. The event will also feature a bouncy castle, music from Sunshine Radio, a craft stall from Church Stretton’s Scrappies, a bar, and a barbecue with local food and homemade cakes.

Ashley says Macmillan helped him and his family get through their difficult times: “Macmillan gave me a grant to help with travel costs when I was having my treatment over 150 miles away in London, gave us psychological counselling to help deal with our fears of cancer and for the future, and organised rapid pain relief prescriptions from the local GP.

“The Cycling Festival is a fantastic day out for the whole family and will raise money to help cancer patients in Shropshire.”
