It seems to have come around quicker than ever!
Our fifth Pedal for Pounds bike ride starts this Wednesday.
After Southend, Brighton, Yeovil and last year’s tour of Yorkshire, we’ll be heading out on the Chapman Trail.
We’re celebrating our legendary manager Herbert Chapman, who built the triple title-winning teams at both Town and Arsenal.
We’ll set off from the Gunners’ magnificent Emirates Stadium, just around the corner from the old Highbury, where Chapman reigned.
The riders, and there will be almost 300 of us, will get coaches from Canalside down to the capital early in the morning, and set off back on the bikes around midday.
We will head to Cambridge (around 55 miles) on day one of the Trail.
Then it’s on to Leicester, our visitors on Saturday, a ride of around 75 miles and the longest of the four sections.
Doncaster is the destination on Friday, when we’ll be pedalling for 70 miles.
Then it’s back to the John Smith’s Stadium for a lap of the track and the big game against the Foxes.
As ever, it’s all for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Keep It Up campaign, and so far the bike rides have raised £600,000 of the total £980,000 generated.
The £1m mark is our target and we’re confident of reaching it.
Dean Hoyle and Sean Jarvis will be back in the saddle, and it really is a fantastic event to be involved in.
Hopefully we’ll return to witness a win over Leicester, who have of course already clinched promotion to the Premier League.
It’s ended a 10-year wait for top-flight football for their supporters, who stuck with the club when they slipped into League I for the 2008-09 season, my last as a player.
Leicester were the deserved champions under Nigel Pearson that year, and after a spell at Hull, he has returned to lead them to another well-merited promotion.
The club stuck with him after last season’s play-off semi-final defeat to Watford, and have reaped the rewards.
It’s pretty much the same squad as last season, and their success has come through being strong, well organised and consistent.
Danny Drinkwater has been excellent, and it will be good to see another of our former players, Gary Taylor-Fletcher.
But hopefully we’ll be smiling after the final whistle!
