A community organisation is holding a bike ride fun day for all the family this weekend.

Neilston Development Trust (NDT) is urging people of all ages and abilities to sign up for Saturday's (October 9) 'Tour De Neilston'.

The event is free and will start at 10.30am at The Bank in the village's Main Street.

Young riders will receive freebies and a prize for the best decorated helmet.

Afterwards participants will have the chance to head back to The Bank for NDT's pop up zero waste cafe, which is open to the public from 10am to 4pm.

At the cafe, cyclists will be able to enjoy a well-earned rest with some food and coffee or a milkshake.

Those aged nine and under must be accompanied by an adult and children under 16 must have an adult sign them in at the meeting point.

Refreshments will be provided by the Community Fund run by the Co-op, who will also have a a pop up soft plastic recycling stall at the event.

Soft plastics are lightweight plastics that often cannot be placed in recycling bins at home, such as plastic film lids on yoghurt pots, soft fruit punnets and ready meals, as well as plastic crisp packets, pasta bags and chocolate or biscuit wrappers.

They are not are plastic bottles, tubs, pots, trays and caps. If you’re not sure, a simple test is to scrunch it up and if it pings back, this is a useful indicator it is soft plastic.
