A CHARITY cycle ride comes to Holmfirth tomorrow.
Last Sunday, two teams of staff from Robert Wiseman Dairies began racing towards the finish line in Manchester, to raise cash for the Variety Club.
The first team set off from Taunton in Somerset and the other from Keith in Scotland.
When they finish, the teams - more than 50 riders in all - will have cycled 373 miles each.
And at the firm's 13 depots across the country other staff members have been taking part in the ride - but on exercise bikes.
A spokesman said: "We wanted to do something challenging to help raise funds for the Variety Club - and the cycle ride has so far been that.
"We have been so impressed with the dedication. As well as raising lots of sponsorship money for this cause, we are having a fantastic time meeting Wiseman employees all over the country.
"The ride has gone really well and we are proud that so many employees have taken part, with many more peddling away on static bikes back at the office."
The idea for the event was thanks to dairy manager and cycling fanatic Robert Ross, from East Kilbride.
He said: "The idea came about after myself and John McNamara, distribution manager for Glasgow, got chatting.
"We are both keen cyclists and thought it would be a great way to help the Variety Club."
The money raised will go towards buying two coaches to take sick and disabled children on days out.
Tomorrow's ride starts from Compo's Cafe on Greenfield Road at 10.30am. Organisers hope people will turn out to cheer the cyclists off.
