Third day of Pedal for Pounds 10 completed as riders board the ferry to Hull
- Over 200 cyclists ride 62 miles from Amsterdam to Rotterdam
- The cyclists power through The Hague
- Pedal for Pounds 10 is in association with Made by Cooper
The riders yesterday (Thursday 2 May 2019) raced through the Hague towards Rotterdam before boarding the overnight ferry to return to the United Kingdom, ahead of the final day of Huddersfield Town’s Pedal for Pounds 10 with Made by Cooper bike ride, ‘The Chairman’s Choice’.
The cyclists began the day in Amsterdam before riding 27 miles towards the only stop of the day in Leiden.
Unfortunately, the rain did eventually make an appearance but the 35-mile cycle towards the ferry saw the cyclists travel through the picturesque Den Haag (the Hague).
The cyclists spent the night on the ferry back to Hull, before beginning a further 88-mile ride back to Huddersfield this morning.
Whilst the cyclists have been tackling the gruelling ride, main sponsor Made By Cooper’s raffle is still ongoing with Huddersfield Town themed prizes up for grabs.
