Cycle challenge fundraiser heads into Lancashire on Day Two

DAY TWO of the 300 Miles 3 Days challenge saw cyclists head past the halfway point of their journey from Glasgow to Stoke - and raise well over £10,000 for charity in the process.

Donations for the bikers' fundraiser have continued to come in through the week, after their first day on the road saw them leave Glasgow, pass through Abington and cross the border into England.

The group then set off from the Crown and Mitre hotel in Carlisle at 7.15am this morning to make their way down to Preston.

A mid-morning drinks stop in Penrith was followed by lunch at the Fire Station in Carnforth, with an estimated arrival time of 6.00pm at the Tickled Trout pub in Preston.

A beautiful day of blue skies and sun was enjoyed by all as the party made their way further south through the Lake District, and they'll be hoping for equally favourable conditions for tomorrow's final stage.

They depart the Lancashire city for Stoke-on-Trent in the morning and are scheduled for a lap of honour at the Britannia Stadium during half-time of Stoke City's game with Fulham.

The brainchild of two work colleagues at Stoke Citreon, who are supporters of Stoke City and Rangers, the 300 Miles 3 Day challenge will split all the proceeds between the Club's Community Trust and Rangers' Charity Foundation.

Midfielder Charlie Adam and Rangers goalkeeper Steve Simonsen, part of City's Premier League promotion winning squad of 2008, have already given their support to the challenge and you can do so too by donating via the Just Giving page HERE.

You can also follow their updates through Facebook and Twitter.

The cycle challenge is being supported by Marbill Coaches, Evans Halshaw, Brian Rourke, Longstaff cycles, Enterprise rent a car, Pure Gym Stoke, Nuffield Health, Provision cycle clothing, the Louden Tavern, Coopers Bar Wishaw and PREM Management.
