Simon Hammonds and Peter Oliver, who are representing Dale at this year’s Cycle to Amsterdam challenge, are continuing to put in the miles ahead of the big event.
It’s less than a month (June 3rd) until the pair get on their bikes for Prostate Cancer UK, cycling 145-miles over two days, from Barnsley to Amsterdam.
On Saturday, Peter clocked up 65 miles in around four hours, cycling from his home near Preston to Lancaster and back.
Setting off from Hoghton, he headed due North up the A6 to Lancaster, before turning south at Lancaster, to head past Lancaster Royal Infirmary Infirmary, following the road through Cockerham, Pilling, down to Hambleton, before heading back towards Preston via Great Eccleston, Elswick and Woodplumpton.
By signing up for the challenge, they’ve joined 500 other fans/ club staff from across the Football League in pledging to raise money (a minimum of £1,000 each) for Prostate Cancer UK.
So far, the pair have raised almost 90-percent of their total target, thanks to donations from friends, family and fellow Dale supporters, but need one last push to get them over the finish line.
The club has set up a Team-Rochdale JustGiving Page where supporters can donate > https://www.justgiving.com/team-rochdale
