Cyclists have just a few days left to get involved with a mammoth fundraiser.

Huddersfield Town have set a registration deadline on this year’s Pedal for Pounds ride, which has been named the Bill Shankly Tour paying homage to the star who managed the club between 1956 and 1959.

Shankly, of course, then went on to achieve greatness at Liverpool.

The ride, which will be the seventh so far organised by the club, will start at Carlisle and visit Liverpool on its way to Huddersfield, as it takes in the former manager’s clubs.

It is expected it will raise tens of thousands of pounds.

Pedal for Pounds 7 is being sponsored by Orchard Energy and will raise funds for the Keep It Up campaign, which supports the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Huddersfield Town Academy.

The deadline for tickets will be Wednesday, January 13, so anyone interested in getting fit for a cause is urged to book now to avoid disappointment.

The ride will begin from Carlisle United’s Brunton Park on Wednesday May 4, and will finish that evening 80 miles south in Lancaster.

The following day’s journey will pass Preston North End, where Shankly played between 1933 and 1949, and end in Liverpool.

The final day will take in a 70-mile ride ending at Huddersfield, where evening celebrations at PPG Canalside will be later held.

Club ambassador Andy Booth said: “I am extremely excited about ‘P4P7: The Shankly Tour’.

“It’s a challenging route, and one we’ve never done before, and to take in other clubs along the way should be something special.

“The atmosphere at PPG Canalside when the ride ends here on the Friday evening should be great.”

“I’d urge Town fans to back the ride again this year and help us raise funds for a fantastic cause!”

Pedal for Pounds has raised more than £1.3 million for charity since it began in 2009.
