- Dean and Janet Hoyle leading team of cyclists to Wembley
- 211-mile ride raising funds via Just Giving
- Full details of ride and how to donate below

Our incredible team of cyclists – lead by Dean and Janet Hoyle – have completed the Road to Wembley!

Day One saw our riders complete a journey from our home at the John Smith’s Stadium to Grantham in a journey that spanned 88-miles, whilst day two saw them tackle a second leg of 90-miles to Letchwood Garden City!

Today (Saturday 28 May 2022) the group ended the trip with a 33-mile stint to Wembley Stadium, where Town will face Nottingham Forest in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final on Sunday 29 May 2022.

In addition to our annual Pedal For Pounds events, this ride will be dedicated to the memory of Town fan Daryl Hopson, who sadly lost his brave battle with Cancer last month. The hope is that the ride raises enough funds to build a memorial garden at the John Smith’s Stadium in his memory, also honouring all other Town fans who we lose each year.

Any funds that are raised over and above the cost of the garden will be distributed to the four charities that benefited from the recent Pedal for Pounds 10.5 ride sponsored by Made by Cooper; the Town Foundation, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, The Kirkwood and Platform 1.
