TWENTY CYCLISTS undertaking a 300-mile sponsored bike ride to help raise vital funds for Stoke City's Community Trust look set to complete their arduous adventure on schedule.
The group, who set off from the Britannia Stadium yesterday to cycle to Rangers’ Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow, are on course to cross the border into Scotland later today.
The intrepid band of cyclists, including City’s Head of Community Adrian Hurst, are working their way through the Lake District today after covering 105 miles on the opening leg of their three-day ride.
The sponsored bike ride is the brainchild of two work colleagues at Stoke Citroen, James Bertram and Gordon Walker; one a Potters supporter, the other a fan of the Scottish club.
Therefore, the money that is raised from their exploits will go to the community schemes of both clubs and therefore support important initiatives undertaken by them.
As well as the grand arrival in Glasgow for Rangers’ final match of the season against Berwick Rangers, the cyclists will also ride into City’s final home game of the season against Tottenham Hotspur eight days later which has, of course, been designated as the Club’s 150th Anniversary celebration match.
The organisations who have already pledged their support for the bike ride are: Evans Halshaw, Citroen UK, The Co-operative Group, Menzies Hotels, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Swinnerton Cycles, PREM Management and the Premier League Support.
