PEDAL POWER FOR ‘CYCLE FOR SEWA’

PEDAL POWER FOR ‘CYCLE FOR SEWA’

Yesterday, the fifth annual ‘Cycle for Sewa’ Manchester event was held at the Tameside Cycle Circuit on Richmond Street, Ashton.

Sewa is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘selfless service’ and is an important part of the Sikh religion.

Every year, Tameside’s Sikh community puts on a fundraising cycle event and this year was no exception. Scores of people got on their bikes to support the event, including the Mayor of Tameside Cllr Denise Ward who cut a ribbon to get the cyclists underway, the idea being to cycle round the track as many times as possible within a two hour time frame.

This year’s event raised a fantastic £1,489 for charity.
