Monday 10 February 2020 is your last chance to take part in Huddersfield Town’s Pedal for Pounds 11 with Made By Cooper ride: The Ride of Yorkshire and raise money for charity!
This is the perfect way for you to get fit, have a laugh, visit football grounds and to support four local charities.
The Pedal for Pounds rides are known for the physical test and the camaraderie along the way! You can get fit, meet new friends and make a lot of memories!
Be part of a team of up to 20 riders, who will look after you together with a great support team and have the chance to cycle next to former Huddersfield Town players; Tom Cowan, Peter Jackson, Matt Glennon, Jon Worthington, Darren Bullock and Academy Manager Leigh Bromby.
Alongside this, Chairman Phil Hodgkinson and former Chairman/Director Dean Hoyle will also be in attendance!
How much do you know about God’s Own Country? Well this is the perfect chance for you to go around the Dales, Moors, Vales and Coast as well as visit all Yorkshire clubs in the top five divisions of English football.
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 FC Halifax Town, Bradford City, Leeds United and Harrogate Town before ending up at Middlesbrough FC’s Riverside Stadium.
After a night in Teesside, day two (Thursday) will be a scenic 83-mile ride across the North York Moors to Hull City and overnight stayover in Hull.
The cyclists will then head for Sheffield on Friday, stopping in at Doncaster Rovers, Rotherham United, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday; day three will be 78-miles.
The final leg of ‘The Ride of Yorkshire’ on Saturday 25 April will see the cyclists call in at Barnsley FC on their way back to the John Smith’s Stadium for the Club’s final home game of the season against West Bromwich Albion for a pre-match lap of honour.
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.
