THEY cycled hundreds of miles from Huddersfield to Brighton.

But for one set of Pedal for Pounds riders the challenge was not over.

Huddersfield Town fans Christopher Scrivener and Stephen Harrison completed the epic ride on a blue and white tandem.

For all 260 miles Christopher was firmly placed on the back seat because he is blind.

But for the final few hundred yards around Brighton’s Withdean Stadium, the 20-year-old took charge of the bike, completing a full lap of the ground.

Stephen, said: “I jokingly suggested we set ourselves a second target of Chris at the front of the tandem, steering, balancing, pedalling; everything a sighted person would do, albeit with instruction from me behind.

“We did training for this around the Galpharm car park as well as our distance training rides.

“It went remarkably well, I had to put my complete confidence in him.

“He needed to go quicker than everyone else so I was there giving directions and shouting to people to get out of the way, but we made it round without incident.”

The duo’s third challenge is to raise £2,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
