After departing Antwerp yesterday (Wednesday 1 May 2019), the cyclists overcame the longest stretch of Huddersfield Town’s Pedal for Pounds with Made by Cooper bike ride, ‘The Chairman’s Choice’, as they cycled 102 miles into the Netherlands before finishing up in Amsterdam.
The day’s cycling began with the riders leaving Antwerp at 7am before crossing the border into the Netherlands.
A 22.5-mile ride followed before the first stop of the day in Schijf; the cyclists then completed a further 27-mile journey towards Dordrecht, where Chairman Dean Hoyle again served up the day’s dinner, alongside One 17 Design’s Team Tea.
The riders were soon on their bikes again and they made their final stop of the day in Zandveldseweg, after a gruelling 76 miles, before powering on towards Amsterdam where they would spend Wednesday night.
This year’s Pedal for Pounds 10 with Made by Cooper ride, ‘The Chairman’s Choice’, will raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, the Town Foundation, Kirkwood Hospice and Ruddi’s Retreat.
