TO coincide with the final stage of the Tour de France, a Bradley pub has decided to hold a bike time trial event to raise money for charity.

Phil Cook, landlord of the Slaters Arms, has organised the Tour de Bradley, which will be start at the public house on Crag Road at 2pm on Sunday. (July 27)

For £5, those who attend the event can hop on to a new Trek road bike, donated by Chevin Cyles, and ride a one-mile route around the bottom of Bradley.

The route will take in Matthew Lane, Ings Lane, Lidget Road, Main Street and Crag Lane.

Although the route will be timed, Mr Cook says it does not matter who finishes first or last, as everyone's name will be entered into a raffle with an equal chance of winning the £375 Trek bike, provided by Chevin Cycles.

The event will also include a barbecue and a performance by Skipton band Undercover.
