CYCLISTS are gearing up for a different kind of university challenge.

The University of York’s new Vice-Chancellor, Professor Koen Lamberts, a keen cyclist, will take to the saddle to lead the fundraising YuCycle challenge – which takes to the road on Sunday, June 22.

Riders will be able to choose between rides of 25km, 50km or 100km. Starting and finishing at York Sport Village the signposted routes will take in roads in East and North Yorkshire.

Participants will have the benefit of free training sessions before the event as well as on-ride support and post-event refreshments.

Money raised will go to the Achieving Excellence Bursary Appeal, which enables students from lower income families to get the most out of their time at York.

Places for the event are limited.

Riders can find more details and register at yorkspace.net/yucycle
