A cycling charity for cancer is offering disillusioned Lance Armstrong fans the chance to trade in their yellow Livestrong bracelets for an unsullied replacement.
Cyclists Fighting Cancer are offering a service that sends yellow bracelets to a factory in the USA for recycling and replaces them with a Cyclists Fighting Cancer 'Keep Pedalling' blue wristband.
Just follow these simple steps:
1) Remove Livestrong wristband
2) Send it to us with a stamped, self-addressed, envelope
3) Add a small donation if you want
4) Recieve a Cyclists Fighting Cancer wristband in return
5) Wear your CFC wristband with pride!

This latest fun to be poked at the disgraced cyclist comes in the wake of a Souith Park episode in which supporter queue to have their wristbands removed.
In this trailer, Cartman says: “I can’t believe we all got duped. I’ve been wearing this stupid thing for months.”
School counsellor Mr Mackey is more conflicted about the situation, though. “I don’t know what to believe in anymore,” he wails, as his bracelet is given the snip.
It’s not the first time Armstrong has been given the cartoon treatment.
Previously, he has voiced himself in an episode of The Simpsons in which he appeared alongside muppet Fozzie Bear.
He has also appeared as a rabbit – really – in an episode of the kids’ series Arthur.
The portrayal of him in South Park is rather less sympathetic.
After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur.
