A SPECIAL event is being held in Stourbridge to celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of the town’s popular cycling groups.

Stourbug, founded in 2007 by Russell and Nicky Eden, has grown to a membership of over 250 men and women offering rides to suit all abilities.

At Stourbug’s 10th Anniversary Open Day on Saturday, May 6, the public can find out more about cycling with the group, between noon and 3pm at the Activity Centre in Mary Steven’s Park.

During the day, Stourbug members will be on hand to speak about all about the club’s events and activities that take place throughout the year.

The activities include both on and off road rides for adults of all abilities, social activities and – for the extra keen – the chance to sign up and become a member to join the group on their many rides that leave the park almost every day.

Graham Austin, group member, said: “Get over to Mary Steven’s Park on Saturday, May 6, where Stourbug riders will be there to say ‘hi’ and tell you what they love about cycling with Stourbug.”

Information will also be available on Dudley Council’s cycling opportunities across the borough, while West Midlands Police will be security stamping bikes.

Graham added: “If that’s not enough, Dr Bike will be offering free bike checks so don’t forget to bring your bike and get it checked out.”
