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.
