A councillor will cycle 127 miles in two days along the Leeds Liverpool Canal to raise money for charity.
Milnshaw ward councillor Paul Cox will take on the challenge with fellow bike ride Ray Smith, husband of Church councillor Joan Smith, in aid of the Accrington Blind Society and North West Air Ambulance.
He said: “Myself and Ray noted that the halfway point was right here in Hyndburn, in fact it is located right in the centre of Church ward.
“So we decided to ride the entire route in aid of two important charities that helped many residents of this area.”
They will start in Liverpool on Thursday, July 10 at 8.30am and cycle for around 10 hours before completing another 10-hour ride the next day.
Both cyclists have been taking part in several training rides over the last few months across the borough and said they were delighted with the amount of safe cycle ways available for all abilities.
Coun Cox said: “Hyndburn has an abundance of great cycleways and greenways around the borough.
“These pathways are open to all riders from the novice to the expert. Cycling is a great way to stay active and enjoy some of our fantastic heritage.
“Hopefully if we can encourage just a few to give cycling a go, then that has to be seen as a positive.”
