HUDDERSFIELD Town's fundraising cyclists are on the road to Wembley – but were surprised to end up on Wembley Road.

The cyclists, dubbed the Magnificent Seven, stopped off in the village of Langold near Worksop to pose for this picture.

Rider Derek Highe, who joined the first leg of the ride with friend Steve Dove, said: “We couldn’t believe it when we saw this road sign. We just had to get a picture.”

Derek, of Mirfield, and Steve, of Skelmanthorpe, joined Town chairman Dean Hoyle and the six other riders for Wednesday’s 52-mile first leg to Worksop.

“It was a pleasure to be on the bike with the weather and the countryside,” said Derek.

“We had drivers pipping their horns in support and people just coming up and giving us money. It was fantastic.”

Derek and Steve, who took part in the 260-mile Pedal for Pounds Yeovil ride three weeks ago, had a meal with the riders in Worksop on Wednesday night before returning by car.

“We just wanted to show our support,” he said.

The cyclists – also including Mark Ronan, Richard Noon, Luis Alcantarilla, Stephen Beck and brothers Graeme and Mark Lee – arrived in Peterborough this afternoon.

They set off at 5am because Mr Hoyle had an appointment in London tonight.

But he will be back later this evening to rejoin the riders and complete the journey.

The ride aims to raise at least £45,000 to take 1,000 under-privileged kids to Wembley.

More than £43,000 has been raised so far.
