The Scottish Association of Young Farmers Clubs​ will take on a four-day cycle for its annual fundraiser

TheScottish Association of Young Farmers Clubs (SAYFC) has announced its annual fundraiser for 2015 will raise money for hospices across the country.

Get On Your Bike will see members of the association take on a 200-mile cycle from Inverness to Ingliston in Edinburgh, with riders raising sponsorship for their local hospice.

Leading the group on the cycle will be national vice chairman Scott Wilson.

Raising money for charity and supporting our local communities is an integral part of SAYFC

He said: “Raising money for charity and supporting our local communities is an integral part of SAYFC as is having fun and bringing together members from across Scotland.

“This is a particularly special fundraiser for me as I was part of the event in 2010 when more than 50 of us covered over 120 miles so we are really stepping up the challenge with more miles and hopefully more members and supporters.”

The challenge will take place over four days from 13 to 16 August and is open to all abilities with the option to take part in the full event, or just one day.

Full information can be found on the association's website with participants asked to register by Friday, 31 May.
