A CHARITY is asking Trafford cyclists to pump the pedals across Lancashire this summer, and help raise funding for research into treatments for muscle-wasting conditions.

The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is looking for recruits for the 60-mile Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride on July 13, which will take 8,000 cyclists from Manchester United’s Old Trafford ground to Blackpool.

For further information or to register, please visit www.muscular-dystrophy.org, or contact the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign on 01244 53655 or at northwest@muscular-dystrophy.org.
