It’s been confirmed that Pedal for Pounds 11 with Made By Cooper will be ‘The Ride of Yorkshire’ – but do you know how that decision was reached?

The 300-mile ride around the county’s football clubs will be a real challenge for the cyclists taking part from Wednesday 22 April 2020, but the challenge for Club Ambassador Andy Booth and the Supporter Services team started back in the summer when they had to come up with a route for the latest instalment of the annual fundraising event.

Now, in an exclusive fly-on-the-wall video, you can see the trials and tribulations that Boothy endured to organise this latest fundraising extravaganza!

Andy is still keen to rid himself of his reputation from Pedal for Pounds 8, when the cyclists arrived in Dortmund but the bikes – which he was responsible for – didn’t! As such, he’s keen for P4P11 to be a ride to remember – but planning didn’t always go smoothly.

You can still join Boothy and the other 149 cyclists if you sign up today! Click HERE for full information and to enter.

The Pedal for Pounds 11 with Made By Cooper journey will begin on Wednesday 22 April 2020, when the cyclists depart from the John Smith’s Stadium on a 105-mile trek! That day they will visit Halifax Town, Bradford City, Leeds United and Harrogate Town before ending up at Middlesbrough FC’s Riverside Stadium.

Along the way, the cyclists will be joined some very familiar faces who’ve played for Town or one of the other Yorkshire clubs! Tom Cowan, Darren Bullock, Peter Jackson, Jon Worthington, Leigh Bromby and Matt Glennon will each do a part of the ride.

On the ride, the cyclists will also be joined by Chairman Phil Hodgkinson, Commercial Director Sean Jarvis and Director/Former Chairman Dean Hoyle, who served bacon butties to the cyclists at the feed stops last year.

The money raised from the ride will go half to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and half to the Town Foundation. The Foundation will split their half in three ways; half of it to their own Breakfast Clubs and the rest between Kirkwood Hospice and Platform 1 – a men’s mental health charity in Huddersfield.
