Ashtons Legal is sponsoring the first Bury Goes Biking event which is taking place on September 30, in Bury St Edmunds.

There is no entry fee for participants, but cyclists are encouraged to raise sponsorship which will go to support St Nicholas Hospice in Bury St Edmunds.

Ashtons has purchased 400 branded high vis vests which will be worn by the riders.

Bez Baker, client relationship executive at Ashtons, said: “As a member of Ashtons’ cycling club I am delighted to be a part of this event, a first for Bury St Edmunds. We are hoping to get lots of our staff involved on the day and hope the local community comes out in force to support this fantastic cause.”

Ian Evans, sport development manager at Abbeycroft Leisure, added: “Excitement around the first closed-road cycling event for Bury St Edmunds is starting to gather momentum, and we’re very grateful to Ashtons Legal for their support. The high-vis vests are certainly going to make a huge difference.”
