There will be stop-offs in the Valley of the Kings and each night cyclists will sleep in a luxury cruise ship. All flights, food, mountain bikes and accommodation will be provided for Pounds 200, but Mencap asks a minimum sponsorship in return. Proceeds will go to the Mencap Jubilee Appeal for a new family adviser and nationwide computerised information service. Details: Nile Bike Ride organiser, tel: 0171 454 0454.
Volunteers are wanted to get on their bikes and cycle the 500 kilometres along the banks of the Nile from Luxor to Aswan (and back again) between March 22-30 or November 30-December 7 1997, to raise money for Mencap.
