Burnham-On-Sea’s seafront will be full of cyclists this evening (Saturday) when the annual coast-to-coast cycle ride finishes in the town.

Over 400 riders are signed up for the cross-country Chase The Sun event that sees riders leaving the Isle of Sheppey in Kent at 4.30am and then riding to get to Burnham before sunset.

The cyclists are expected to start arriving at the jetty from around 7pm onwards on Saturday.

Organiser Olly Moore added: “Chase the Sun is an annual endurance event that presents a unique physical, navigational and motivational challenge for the enthusiastic riders involved.”

“The ride grows every year, as the concept seems to catch the imagination and inspire more people to take part.”

“Cyclists from all sorts of background have participated, from commuters, to elite athletes. The ride is free to enter.”
