Charity chiefs are urging supporters to saddle up for a special fundraising event.

The 20th annual Pedal For Scotland bike ride, organised by Cycling Scotland, will raise funds for charities through the STV Children’s Appeal.

People of all ages and fitness levels can choose between one of three distances – the 10-mile Wee Jaunt, the 45-mile Classic Challenge or the 100-mile Big Belter.

Among those taking part are Transport Minister Humza Yousaf, STV presenter Jennifer Reoch and Capital Radio’s Des Clarke, Amy Irons and Steven Mill.

It takes place on Sunday, September 9, at Glasgow Green. To register, see:
