A cycling group is hosting a fundraising and advice weekend in aid of Sport Relief.

Braintree based group Easy Riders, together with representatives from the Happy Handlebars project will be at the front of Sainsbury's, in Tofts Walk, over the weekend.

Members will be giving out information on rides, handy cycle maps of Braintree, hints and tips and are bringing their famous smoothie maker with them.

Donations will be collected across the week, and throughout the week for Sport Relief, which takes place between Saturday and next Sunday.

The club has also announced a new series of cycle rides, designed specifically for families.

The first tide takes place on Saturday, April 7, from 11am at Braintree Sport and Health Club, in Panfield Lane.

In addition, Braintree Easy Riders will be offering a free bike check service at the front of the Centre every second and fourth Saturday of the month.
