BUTCHER Andrew Jones swapped pies for pedals to take part in a charity bike ride.
The Birkby dad-of-three, who runs shops in Marsh and Brighouse and a bakery on Leeds Road, Huddersfield, cycled 50 miles for Yorkshire Cancer Research.
He said: “I signed up for it because I enjoy going out cycling and I wanted a challenge.
“But the route took us passed my grandparents’ house. They both died of cancer.
“We also went passed my sister in law’s house and she had breast cancer.
“It really made it hit home why we were doing it.”
Mr Jones (pictured) raised about £500 by taking part in the Pedal for Pounds event, which took the cyclists from Harewood House near Leeds, through the Wharfe Valley and back.
He said he had lost about three stone in weight by taking up cycling.
He said: “I had got fed up with going to the gym so I bought a bike to go out with my son Patrick. I ended up going out more than he did, and I just got bitten by the bug.
“I’d like to do more for charity and think it could be the first event of many.”
