Northamptonshire’e cycling sisters Hannah and Alice Barnes put their sibling rivalry aside to support the county’s biggest annual charity bike ride.

Before taking part in the final stage of the Women’s Tour through the county on Sunday, Hannah, 23, and Alice, took time out from their preparations for a photoshoot for Cycle4Cynthia.

The talented two from Northamptonshire then signed special jersey, which will be raffled to raise money for the Cynthia Spencer Hospice.

Alice said: “I know that Cycle4Cynthia riders will be following some of our route and so we both really encourage everyone to take part as it’s always a wonderful event and raises money for such a great cause.”
