Town announce the next big fundraising ride
- Plans for this season’s ‘Pedal for Pounds’ revealed
- Event to take place 26-29 April 2023
- Ends with Town’s game away against Cardiff City
The Terriers will be venturing to the Home of the Dragon for the 2023 annual ‘Pedal for Pounds’ charity bike ride!
The event will take place from 26 to 29 April 2023 with the ride beginning at the John Smith’s Stadium and finishing at the Cardiff City Stadium, where Town will take on the Bluebirds in their second to last game of the 2022/23 season.
The ride will be approximately 260 miles in total, with the mileage breakdown of each day as follows:
• Day 1: departing from the John Smith’s Stadium to Lichfield (108 miles)
• Day 2: ride from Lichfield to Worcester (60 miles)
• Day 3: leave Worcester and finish in Cardiff (90 miles)
• Day 4: Cardiff City vs Huddersfield Town, 3pm kick-off
The ride raises funds for the lifesaving Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity and the Huddersfield Town Foundation, as well as two other extremely deserving causes: Andy’s Man Club and Ruddi’s Retreat.
The minimum amount for each participant to raise will be £500, with each charity receiving 25% of funds raised.
The entry fee is £250 per person which includes three nights bed and breakfast in shared accommodation, an official cycling shirt, the ‘I Completed’ t-shirt, a match ticket for the Cardiff City game at the end of the ride, bike transportation back from Cardiff, return coach travel from Cardiff, medical support and refreshments throughout the ride.
Further details on sponsorship, timings and route will follow in the coming weeks for those who sign up to the event.
Club Ambassador Andy Booth commented:
“We’re really looking forward to this year’s ride; we’re taking it right back to where it all began by cycling to our last away game of the season.
“It will be a tough challenge looking at the route, but this is what P4P is all about! It’s an opportunity to be part of something special and leaves you with memories for life. The camaraderie is like nothing else!
“Anyone can take part, and we’ve noticed more people using electric bikes over the past few years which makes the event even more inclusive.
“We know in the current climate it’s tough for everybody and local charities in particular need our support more than ever in these challenging times. We are proud to be helping four great causes which touch the lives of so many in Huddersfield and beyond.”
Entry fees (which are non-refundable) should be made via bank transfer to the Huddersfield Town Foundation. You can pay the amount in full but for the first time we are giving entrants the ability to pay their entry fee in instalments; with a £50 deposit to reserve a place on the ride being due before 31 December. The remainder will then be due over the following two months; £100 to be paid by 31 January and the final £100 to be paid by 15 February.
