For the first time this morning our team of riders suited up and got on their bikes.
Our ride began at York City FC’s ground, Bootham Crescent, where we presented a cheque for £1,000 to the club and their chosen charity, Yorkshire Cancer Research.
It was a fantastic start to the challenge, and we’d like to thank all the club for their hospitality, the people who came to wave us off, and the people of York who’ve donated.
We would also like to thank York Press for featuring our ride, and Minster FM for also giving us a mention this morning. Thank you!
Back in Portsmouth we’re also giving updates to Express FM, so tune in at 8.15am every morning to hear how we’re getting on — and to hear about what’s gone wrong.
We’re astonished to have reached more than £27,000 — we have four and a half thousand pound to go to get to our total! That’s amazing!
So from all of us, cheers! To find out how to donate, see here.
