The annual Birmingham to London charity bike ride is arranged by the Sikh Arts & Cultural Association (SACA).
Hundreds of cyclists will be coming from the Hayes side and cheered along Southall Broadway towards their final destination, Southall park.
They cyclists completing their ride will be acknowledged and awarded medals for their effort.
I am sure we all agree this is an excellent cause to support and I know that the cyclists enjoy the encouragement they receive from members of the public.
The cyclists will probably start arriving between 2-3 pm and so if you are available please do come along to Southall Park and support them as they arrive in Southall.
Last year we raised a staggering £53,500 for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Children's SACA Home from Home.
This year, the money raised by the SACA Charity Bike Ride 2017 will be used to fund 'Helping Hands Projects' in association with WellChild UK for children and young adults living with serious illness.
Over the last 32 years, the ride has raised in excess of £510,000 in aid of different children's charity groups.
