Former X Factor contestant Stacey Solomon has urged cycle enthusiasts to get on their two wheelers and help raise money for charity.
The singer told the Bourne Local how she is backing the supermarket chain Iceland's Cycle Britain challenge in aid of Alzheimer's Research UK.
Solomon said: "I'm really excited about Cycle Britain. I've just had a baby so I'm not super-fit but I really wanted to support to help raise as much money as possible."
People may be inspired to invest in bicycle insurance and take part in the event, after the mother-of-two described how £1 million is needed to enable the organisation to carry out its vital work.
Participants will travel 1,000 miles around the UK during the 16-day challenge, which will begin on August 11th in Chester.
Previous Iceland charity drives have resulted in more than £1 million being raised for ARUK, Help for Heroes, the Prostate Cancer Charity, the Alder Hey Imagine Appeal and Save the Family.
