Councillor Charlesworth said: “Please join in the ride if you can. It should be a really good day out and will help to raise much-needed funds for two charities that do so much fantastic work, Development Plus and Dial-a-ride.

“I’ve enjoyed being able to support these charities throughout my mayoral year and this will be my final chance to add to the money that’s already been raised.

“It would be great to be accompanied by as many riders as possible on the route, even if it’s joining in along the way.

“We’re hoping for some beautiful weather and when we get to the Stonebow we can celebrate our achievements with food and drink with the civic party.”

Anyone wishing to take on the whole challenge should make their own way to Boston with their bikes.

The cost to join in the ride is £5 for adults and £2.50 for children which includes a goodie bag and reception at Lincoln Guildhall with the civic party at the end of the journey.
