HUDDERSFIELD people have been urged to get on their bikes for charity.
The Prince’s Trust is calling on people across Yorkshire to help tackle youth unemployment by taking part in the youth charity’s cycle challenge.
The Mersey to Tyne Cycle Challenge will see almost 100 cyclists riding 245 miles in three days – travelling through the Yorkshire Dales from Liverpool to Newcastle to raise vital funds to get unemployed young people into work.
The cycle ride starts on September 28 from Liverpool’s Liver Building and will finish at the Millennium Bridge in Newcastle.
Andrew Farley, of The Prince’s Trust in Yorkshire, said: “This is an excellent way to get fit while also raising money for a great cause.
“With youth unemployment so high in the north it is vital that we give young people as much support to help them into work.
“Every penny counts and can make a huge difference to the future of our young people.”
Cyclists are asked to pay a registration fee and aim to raise as much money for The Trust as possible.
The Prince’s Trust has helped more than 700,000 young people since 1976 and supports 100 every working day.
