JUMP in the saddle this summer - it's a great way to keep fit and have fun at the same time.

That's the message from the Stevenage and North Herts branch of cycling club CTC.

Following the success of the Stevenage Start of Summertime Specials which attracted 333 cyclists, the Wednesday easy evening rides from Old Town have started early this year.

There will be a ride at least every Wednesday right through until September 26 - and they are free. Get along to Bowling Green near the warm memorial and Springfield House Community Centre in time for a 7.15pm start.

This Saturday there is a "starter" ride ideal for newcomers and those who just want to cruise. Meet at Costello's Cafe in Fairlands Valley Park, Stevenage in time for a 2pm start. It will go to Whitwell and back and there'll be a refreshment break.
