IT’S a bicycle built not for two but for 300.
Delighted officials at Huddersfield Town have confirmed that 300 people will be getting on their bikes this spring to help the club and charity.
The club confirmed that was the number of fans who have signed up to take part in the biggest fundraiser to date, the Pink Link ‘Pedal for Pounds 3’ bike ride from Yeovil to Huddersfield.
Entries are now closed for what will be the club’s third charity bike ride, which raises money for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign.
That will see the money divided equally between the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Town Academy.
Twenty-two hardy souls took part in the first ride from Huddersfield to Southend in 2009 while 168 went “With Dean to the Withdean” in 2011, from Huddersfield to Brighton.
Those two rides raised over £200,000 for the ‘Keep it Up’ campaign.
Once again Town’s chairman Dean Hoyle will be on his bike for the ride. He will be joined by Town commercial director Sean Jarvis and club ambassador Andy Booth.
He said: “To see so many of our supporters getting on board with the ride this year is absolutely amazing.
“The club has been dedicated to raising funds for YAA since the start of our partnership with the charity in 2009, and we are well on the way to hitting our million pounds target.
