Huddersfield-based company kits out support vehicles
Huddersfield Company Trafficlear, specialists in emergency vehicle warning equipment, has pledged its support to the Pink Link Pedal for Pounds 4 bike ride by kitting out the ride’s support vehicles!
Each of the back-up vehicles have been assessed by the Trafficlear team, which has advised what sort of light equipment they will need based on their specific job on the ride.
Sam Turner and Dave Roberts joined Town’s Club Ambassador and P4P4 cyclist Andy Booth for the photo.
Andy Earnshaw, Head of UK Business Development at Trafficlear commented, “Myself and Sam, who took part in P4P3, really wanted to help out with the bike ride this year and so came up with the idea of using high visibility, LED hazard warning lights distributed by Trafficlear Limited to improve the safety of the riders and support team.
“The lights will be mounted on support vehicles and trailers increasing safety to both support staff, riders and other road users, plus the lights will be used to make feed stations more visible to riders and any approaching traffic, again improving safety for all parties.
“All the staff at Trafficlear wishes the very best of luck to the riders and support team taking part in this fantastic event, for such worthwhile causes. We hope to see them somewhere en-route!"
Huddersfield Town’s Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan added:
“It’s brilliant that Trafficlear are supporting the bike ride this season. We’ve got upwards of ten support vehicles with us on the ride – a mixture of vans, motorbikes and cars – all of which have different jobs to do. Now each vehicle will be fully visible with light bars and beacons thanks to Andy and the team at Trafficlear.”
There’s now under one week to go until the Pink Link Pedal for Pounds 4 bike ride begins, when 290 cyclists will tour Yorkshire on a four day excursion to raise funds for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign, which financially supporters the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Keep it Up campaign.
The 235 mile ride around the county will set off on Wednesday 1 May, taking in overnight stops in Hull, Scarborough and Harrogate before returning back in time for the Club’s last home game against Barnsley on Saturday 4 May.
