Free guided cycling tours for women and children are on offer this Saturday in Preston.

Despite warnings of heavy rain for the whole day from the Met Office a 16-mile ride is on offer along the Guild Wheel and taking in some of Preston’s surrounding countryside.

The tours are part of the Preston City Games, and are free to take part in.
