YuCycle is the University's community charity bike ride and the Vice Chancellor, Professor Koen Lamberts, is training with a five-strong staff team for the 7 June event.
Professor Lamberts said: “Having taken part last year, I have once again been persuaded to take to the saddle. We had a great day out, challenging, but satisfying and I would urge people to get on their bikes and fundraise too.”
The team will join hundreds of other riders setting off from York Sport Village to ride up to 100km around the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds and raise funds for their favourite charity. Cyclists can also choose to 50km and 25 km routes if they prefer and to bring children over 12.
The University's fantastic cycling facilities are helping the team to be in tip-top condition for YuCycle - as part of their entry fee riders will have access to three free training sessions... at the cycle track at York Sport Village.
