Four day Tour of Yorkshire departs on Wednesday
The Pink Link Pedal for Pounds 4 bike ride sets off from Canalside Sports Complex on Wednesday morning – and the route has today been revealed!
290 cyclists, including the likes of Town Chairman Dean Hoyle, Club Ambassador Andy Booth and Academy Manager Mark Lillis, will set off from Town’s training complex at around 9am on Wednesday to tour Yorkshire and raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Huddersfield Town Academy.
The day one route will see the cyclists depart Huddersfield via Mirfield, making their way through Horbury into Wakefield and then via Featherstone, Pontefract, Howden and finally into Hull. A water stop is planned for the cyclists on the junction of Carleton Road and Green Lane in Pontefract, as well as a feed stop on Treeton Road, Howden.
Day two begins with an 8am departure from Hull through Hornsea, Skipsea – where the water stop will happen near Far Grange Golf Club – Burton Agnes and Bridlington into Flamborough, before reaching the final destination of Scarborough. The stop for food will take place on Flamborough’s picturesque North Landing!
Another 8am departure on day three will take cyclists through Pickering into the North Yorkshire Moors via Kirbymoorside. The water stop is the Rose and Crown pub on Simpson Hill, Helmsley, before a subsequent food stop in Thirsk – with the final destination of Harrogate via Ripon.
Day four is a shorter route, as the cyclists need to arrive at the Stadium ahead of Town’s 12.45pm kick-off against Barnsley! The groups will set off from Harrogate and pedal through Rawdon, Bradford and Cleckheaton before arriving back at Canalside.
The cyclists will then embark upon a pre-match ‘lap of honour’ at the Stadium – please get to your seat early to give them a proper welcome!
If any Town fans live near the route, please come out and give the cyclists a cheer!
