Huddersfield Town fans still have time to sign up for the club’s end-of-season Pedal for Pounds bike ride to Blackpool and back.
The deadline for the 140-mile Victoria Tower to Blackpool Tower ride has been extended to January 23.
It is the club’s sixth annual ride to raise money for the Keep It Up campaign which splits proceeds between the club’s youth academy and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
The ride starts at Castle Hill at 10am on Friday, May 1 finishing later that day at Blackpool Tower, some 70 miles away.
On the Saturday the riders will pedal to Bloomfield Road for the last game of the season against Blackpool before cycling back to the John Smith’s Stadium.
Town chairman Dean Hoyle said: “The last game of the season is always a really exciting one and it will be great having the cyclists descending en masse over the Pennines to Blackpool for the sixth annual ride.
“The Pedal for Pounds bike rides have taken on a life of their own and we want as many Town fans as possible to be able to have the experience of taking part.
“We appreciate that not everyone can commit to four days off work or stay away from their families for a prolonged period, which is why this year’s ride is over two days.
“It’s something a bit different to what we’ve done before but it’s still 70 miles per day, which is a real challenge.
“I would urge anyone who may have thought about taking part in the past to bite the bullet and go for it. You won’t regret it!”
To register go to www.htafc.com . The £35 registration fee covers cycling jersey, bike and bag tags, ride insurance, ‘I Completed’ T-shirt and water, sandwich and snacks on both days.
The club’s previous Pedal for Pounds bike rides have contributed over £750,000 to the £1 million raised for the campaign since 2009.
