CYCLISTS will ride round Kirklees this weekend for charity.
The 72-mile course follows a circular route from the Old Cattle Market in Holmfirth, taking in the Holme Valley, Denby Dale and the Pennines.
Kirklees Cycle Sportive will raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Epilepsy Group.
Scores of riders are expected to take part, with many travelling from all over the country.
The ride, which has a £10 entrance fee, begins at 9am on Sunday, with registration starting an hour earlier.

Clr Martyn Bolt, cabinet member for transport and a keen cyclist, organised the event.
He said: "This is a great opportunity to take part in a challenging ride and raise money for a couple of great causes.
"We have worked hard putting this route together which takes in some stunning scenery.
"I hope it will promote Kirklees, showing what a wonderfully green area it is."
And Sunday's ride is just part of a busy weekend for Clr Bolt.
He will also take part in the Wigginton 300 on Saturday.
The 300-kilometre race around the Vale of York is a qualifying event for the prestigious Paris-Brest-Paris event in August.
Four years ago Clr Bolt competed in the French race, completing the gruelling 1200-kilometre course in 88 hours and 58 minutes.
