A bike fanatic is inviting locals from the Midlands and East Anglia to take part in a large-scale motorcycle rally for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
If you’re a biker and enjoy a rideout or just like to take a look, there’ll be hundreds of bikers heading into the city centre Saturday May 21.
They’re coming in from Leicester on the A47 but are inviting others to join them and they’ll gather in Cathedral Square. Bike enthusiasts are being encouraged to sign up and ride with them for the fundraising event.
Peterborough City Council has helped to organise the ride, which will see Cambridgeshire Constabulary escort the group along the A47.
For those not wanting to join in the ride but hoping to support the day, a live band, food and plenty of stalls will be at Peterborough Cathedral Square until 4pm.
Riders should arrive from 9am at Leicester City Football Club car park before leaving at 10.30am, where they will arrive at the other end between 12.30pm and 1pm.
Organiser Jaswinder Sodhi, from Leicester, said: “Another rider and I held the motorcycle rally last year and it was very successful, which has encouraged me to organise it a second year running. There aren’t many opportunities for motorcyclists to enjoy large events such as this
“Alzheimer’s Research UK is my chosen charity because dementia research is desperately underfunded.”
Wrist bands will be sold to participants before the ride for £2 and donations to the charity are welcome in exchange for taking part.

Donations on the day are welcome and 100 per cent will go to Alzheimer’s Research UK, the UK’s leading dementia research charity.
