It will be the third time it has taken place around the streets of the city.

The traditional Sheriff’s Ride features horses but a group of cyclists will offer an alternative on September 5.

A spokesperson said: “The alternative ride has no dress code and an emphasis on being fun and friendly.

“We will cycle for a few miles through and around the city before finishing somewhere for a well earned cold drink.”

The Alternative Sheriff’s Ride will meet at 10.30am at the corner of Pinford Road and Cross in Hand Lane. They will watch the horses pass before cycling their own route.
