FOSTER carers are being offered free bike hire at one of the Ashbourne area's cycling trails.
A free one-day hire has been made available for families with children fostered under the Derbyshire County Council scheme at the authority's hire centre in Middleton Top, on the High Peak Trail.
Councillor Kevin Gillott, said the offer was being made as a way of rewarding people for taking on fostering roles.
He said: "Our foster carers do a wonderful job for the children they care for and we are always looking for ways to thank them."
To find out more, contact the centre, which is at the southern end of the High Peak Trail near Carsington Water, on 01629 823204.
