SUMBAT (South Downs United Mountain Bike and All Terrain) Riders will be doing the 100-mile South Downs Way Off-Road Bike Ride on Saturday and the 75-mile London to Brighton Off-Road Bike Ride on September 22.

Rodell Javier said the group was made up of 166 mixed Filipino and British mountain bike riders, and some members were taking on the challenge for charity.

Rodell added: “The majority of us work in the hospital, as nurses, HCAs and porters. Some of us have already done the London to Brighton bike ride, on June 17.”

Allan Alzate will lead the group on Saturday. Visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sumbatriders2018 for more information.
