The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is urging people in Derbyshire to get on their bikes at a nearby event.

The Peak District Mountain Bike Challenge takes place on Saturday, September 29. and will see participants tackling the terrain around the Hope Valley area.

Riders can do battle with one of four circuits including a 15, 24, 34 and 39-mile route.

BHF event organiser Hannah Carling said: “The cycling in the Olympics has been amazing and had the nation hooked.

“Cycling is such a fantastic sport to keep your heart healthy and this challenging event is great for getting your blood pumping.”

The event is unsuitable for under 18s and entry is £20 and £25.

l Collectively, heart and circulatory diseases cause more than one in three of all deaths in the UK, accounting for more than 191,000 deaths each year at an estimated cost of £30 billion to the economy.
