Football fans cycle 250 miles for charity
Huddersfield Town football fans may have ensured they had bicycle insurance before embarking on a 250-mile journey to the south coast.
A group of more than 170 sporting enthusiasts and officials from the club left the West Yorkshire stadium last week ahead of the team’s match against Brighton on Saturday (April 30th).
The cyclists were hoping to arrive in the seaside town in time to see the match and raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance in the process.
Speaking to the Yorkshire Post ahead of the ride, Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle said: “The camaraderie shown amongst the riders throughout the last four months has been fantastic and although it is cold this morning I am sure everyone will have warmed up soon.”
Many of the riders may have been thrilled to see the team beat Brighton 3 – 2 at Withdean Stadium after successfully completing the bike ride challenge.
