The café at Daventry’s biggest bike shop will be stocking and manning the feedstation at a charity cycle ride.

Melo Velo, found at Leisure Lakes Bikes on the town’s Abbey Retail Park will be running the drink and food station for riders in the Cycle for Myton Hospices charity cycle on June 28.

The ride will be raising money for The Myton Hospices with routes suitable for all riders. The feedstation will be available to all riders on the Challenge and Epic routes.

This is the latest in support from local businesses for the charity event – last week, Leisure Lakes Bikes announced that it will provide mechanical support on the day and a goody bag for every rider.

Daventry Cycling Club is organising the Cycle for Myton, and has plans to make this an annual event to support local charities and to get more people on bikes and into the local countryside.

Club secretary Mike Walsh said: “We are working hard to make this a really successful day for everyone who takes part and ultimately make as much money as we can for Myton.”

Entry is from £8 to £12. You can choose from a 106km, 50km or 20km route.
