SNAPSHOT: Pedal power

Cyclists in Oxford took part in The Bike Show Ride, the UK's biggest charity bike ride, last Saturday to help raise money for the British Heart Foundation. More than 20,000 cyclists across the country took part in the event, which started simultaneously in London, Oxford, Manchester, Sheffield, Derby and Birmingham. All routes ended at The Bike Show, an annual cycling fair organised by Haymarket Exhibitions at the NEC in Birmingham. The ride aims to raise at least £1 million for the heart charity in this initial year and is likely to become an annual event. Organisers hope that by 2007 more than 60,000 riders from 12 starting points will raise more than £5 million a year for the charity.
