Riders complete a tough first day of cycling as P4P11 gets underway
- Riders travelled 98 miles to Lichfield for day one
- Teams set off from John Smith’s Stadium at 8am
- 85 cyclists raising money for four great charities
The Pedal for Pounds 11 riders endured a tough first day after completing their journey from the John Smith’s Stadium through the Peak District and Derbyshire to Lichfield.
This year’s P4P11, sponsored by Millers Oils, began strong today, with the riders facing many challenging climbs from the start as they travelled out of Huddersfield.
The 85 cyclists made the 98-mile trip from the John Smith’s Stadium to Lichfield, travelling through the spectacular views of the Peak District as well as Derbyshire along their way.

Departing the John Smith’s Stadium at 8am this morning, the 85 cyclists set off on their 23.5-mile ride to their first stop of the day for a drink break in Glossop. Along the way, views of the Peak District and Derbyshire were to be admired as our P4P11 cyclists enjoyed the scenic route.
They then set off for a further 24.5 miles to lunch at Pomeroy Farm and Caravan Park – where Dean and Janet Hoyle were on the BBQ serving bacon and sausage sandwiches for the riders.
With one more drink stop scheduled at the 75-mile point, the cyclists then made their way there and then to the hotel for the night, for a well-deserved shower and rest.
Tomorrow, the cyclists will be out again as they make the trip to Worcester.
