Determined cyclists rode the 70 miles from Cambridge to Leicester for day two of this year's Pedal4Pounds bike ride.

Around 300 riders continued their trek back to the John Smith's Stadium after beginning the charity challenge at London's Emirates Stadium yesterday lunchtime.

The annual charity bike ride follows a 250-mile route from the Arsenal ground to Huddersfield Town Football Club, named ‘The Chapman Trail’, in honour of the club’s legendary manager, Herbert Chapman.

The four-day trek stops at Cambridge, Leicester and Doncaster and sees riders get back to Huddersfield in time for the last home game of the season against Leicester City on Saturday, April 26.

The annual Pedal 4 Pounds bike ride raises vital funds for the Keep It Up Campaign, an innovative partnership between Huddersfield Town and the  Yorkshire Air Ambulance, which raises money for the charity as well as the club’s Youth Academy.

Last year's Pedal4Pounds 4 event raised a staggering £190,000 for the campaign, which hopes to reach £1m very soon.

Some of the participants have been tweeting their progress and sharing pictures along the way, while Colne Valley MP Jason McCartney also tweeted his support.
