Update to the Three Province Pedal Ride
Over the weekend of Fri 31st May – Sun 2nd June 34 Riders and 6 support crew set off from Durham Services for a 180 mile bike ride. Gavman Rowell, Brian Bullock and Steve Piercy had planned a route from Leeds Provincial Office in Headingley to the Headland of Hartlepool, with various stops along the route for lunch and evening stays in hotels and YHA.
The ending on the Sunday was fantastic and we were all with our families. Can the Festival team take this opportunity to thank you all for your tremendous efforts over the weekend, it had been great riding and sharing some happy and terrible memories all at the same time. We thank all the riders and support crew, you will agree everyone played their part in raising what looks like a projected total of £25,000 which is another supreme effort from Gavin, Steve and Brian and the team. This takes the cycling total to over £75,000 in the last three years.
These challenges are never easy but it’s always satisfying when the riders get finished and arrive home. The PGM & The Festival Team are grateful for the efforts of the whole team including the support teams. Our Durham 2021 Festival wouldn’t be as successful if it wasn’t for events such at these.
We intend to host our supporters evenings again towards the end of the year to thank you all once again and to give us the chance to meet up and relive the memories of the weekend. We hope you can make it, full details will be sent probably over the summer.
