Huddersfield Town’s Pedal for Pounds 9 is complete after the 175 cyclists arrived back at PPG Canalside this afternoon (Saturday 12 May 2018).

After taking the ferry from Zeebrugge, Belgium to Hull overnight, the riders set off at 9am this morning (Saturday 12 May 2018) with home in sight.
As has been the case for every day of cycling, the 175 riders were greeted by bright sunshine as they left the ferry and made their way to the first stop of the day.
Dressed in the blue and white Town colours, the twelve teams made the 25-mile trip to Market Weighton, where they visited the Market Weighton War Memorial Institute.
After a short drink stop, the cyclists then travelled a further 25 miles to Monk Fryston where they stopped for lunch at the Crown Inn pub.
It was then all about making it back home, and with the ‘Terrier Spirit’ in abundance, the riders made the final push before being greeted by cheering crowds on their return to PPG Canalside.
