A CYCLE race will take place in Barnsley town centre on June 24 to raise awareness for cystic fibrosis.

Team Cystic Fibrosis is hosting the Barnsley Criterium around a 1.45km circuit with three races between 6.30pm and 9.30pm.

Each race starts and finishes outside Barnsley Town Hall.

Managing director Richard Cooper said: "This event is bringing cycle races back to Barnsley for the first time in over ten years, and it's perfect timing for the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire."
