Day 4 P4P: The Final Push


9:00am – The team set off from Sheffield, passing the Hillsborough ground and made a very steady pace out of Sheffield (all up hill ) towards Wortley, and then out past Penistone before arriving at Yummies Ice Cream Parlour and Caf at 11am.

Vicki said: “As we arrived all our friends and family were there to greet us, it was very emotional as we all rode up. I felt so relieved to have got back to Huddersfield and I have never been so happy in my life to see Emley Moor mast.

“We all stopped for bacon butties and photos and then set off on the last leg to Ravensknowle Park to meet at 12.30pm where all 280 riders congregated before the final ride down to the Galpharm Stadium.

“The reception down to the Galpharm was absolutely fantastic and the lap of honour was brilliant in the only sunshine we had seen for the last 4 days!

“I certainly never imagined that the challenge would be so hard – and made so much harder by the horrendous weather conditions. Fortunately the Tandemettes all arrived safely and in one piece.

“The amount of energy we have put into this has been unbelievable – not just in the time we have had to train (over 1,000 miles prior to the ride), but the emotional journey and sacrifices we have all made to achieve this challenge.

“I am elated to have finished it and so proud – not once did Sandra and I get off our Tandem and push – even up the steepest hills !!”
