Fast food : Fancy dress cyclists spice up the Cycle4Cynthia event

Members of the public are being asked to assess the outfits worn at the annual charity bike ride which raises money for Northampton’s Cynthia Spencer Hospice.

They are then being invited to vote online with the winner to be announced at the launch of this year’s ride being held at the home of Northampton Saints, Franklin’s Gardens.

Vying for the title are a cyclist who pedalled in a bright blue Mrs Bump costume, a gang of girls who brought a ray of sunshine to the autumn event by riding dressed as daffodils, Flintstones cartoon characters and all the way from Hogwarts - a magical Hagrid and Harry Potter.
