Still going strong - Director Andy Pierson, embarks on Day 2 of 282 mile bike ride.

networx Director,  Andy Pierson, is today embarking on the second stage of the 4 day, 282 mile cycle ride from Lille to Huddersfield, designed to commemorate the lives of six Huddersfield Town players who were killed during service in WW1 on its 100th year anniversary.

Andy and his brother Matt, are part of 175 riders to take part in Huddersfield Town’s ‘Pedal for Pounds 9’ bike ride fundraising for Yorkshire Air Ambulance and have already raised over £1700 for the Charity.

The Black Team , sponsored by networx, set off earlier this morning to cycle 76 miles across France into Belgium. They will be visiting the resting places of places of Sidney James and Larrett Roebuck before everyone attends the Last Post at Menin Gate at 8pm this evening.

Yesterday , the cyclists left Lille at 1pm for a 60 mile journey visiting the memorials of Edward John Didymus, Leigh Richmond Roose and Charles Edward Randall’s along the way.

Day three will see the cyclists race to Zeebrugge for the overnight ferry back to Hull, whilst visiting the final resting place of former Town player Ernest George Kenworthy, the ride stretching 57 miles.

The final leg back to Huddersfield is the longest for the riders, spanning 87 miles from Hull via York.

All cyclists will  also take part in  the annual lap of honour around the John Smith’s Stadium,  at the Club’s final home game of the season against Arsenal.

Here’s a few more pictures of the Black Team taken on Day 1:
