Mountain bikers saddling up

Have your say

A TEAM of 14 members of a Sheffield mountain bike group are saddling up for the British Heart Foundation.

The team from Sheffield Mountain Bikers will take on the charity’s Peak District Mountain Bike Challenge on Saturday, September 29, cycling 39 miles of unforgiving Peak District terrain.

Jan Stetka, aged 32, of Bakewell, one of the organisers, said: “We all know someone who has been affected by heart problems and it touched my family because my dad had several heart problems. Thankfully he received fantastic care and is still with us but others are not so fortunate.”

Event organiser Hannah Carling said: “It is great to have the support of the Sheffield Mountain Bikers – I hope others will join them.”
