London lawyers race for charity

On Sunday 16 October, London's barristers and solicitors will gather at the Herne Hill International Velodrome in London for the fourth annual Lawyers' Bike Races.

The event is a charity benefit for the UK's the Teenage Cancer Trust, with the help of the Bar Cycling Club and the Solicitors' Cycling Club.

Events will include the team pursuit, scratch races and individual time trials. There is scope for some serious competition, but the programme is structured to ensure that everyone enjoys the day, regardless of the previous experience or fitness level. The main aim is to have fun participating on Britain's premier outdoor cycling track.

While the event is organised by London's lawyers, entries from other professions are encouraged, and entries are open to both teams and individuals. Participants simply need a serviceable road bike. There will be an opportunity to try out fixed-wheel track bikes on the course, and a registered coach will be on hand to assist.

To register for the day, or for further information, contact Rod Freeman at
