A DOCTOR will be pedalling 65 miles tomorrow in aid of the hospice where she works.

Dr Laura Imeson, 30, who lives in Stamford, will be among the cyclists taking part in the Ride for Ryder challenge in aid of Sue Ryder Care Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough.

The cyclists will set off from the hospice, which cares for seriously ill patients from across the area. There are three routes of 26 miles, 65 miles and 92 miles to choose from.

It will be the first time Laura, a keen cyclist, has taken part in the Ride for Ryder event and if it goes well, Laura hopes to take on the more challenging 92-mile route next year.

Laura, who was inspired to take part after going on a cycling holiday in July, said: “I have been cycling home from the hospice, which is about 14 miles, as part of my training.

“I think it will be challenging but I am really looking forward to it.

“Working at the hospice I know the good the money I hope to raise will do.””

Laura hopes to raise £200.
