Letter: Wishing Pock Pedal Sportive all the best in cycle challenge

I’d like to send my very best wishes to everyone involved in this year’s Pock Pedal Sportive.

What a great challenge for a cyclist which gives huge support to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance amongst others.

There are few places more apt for a big push on the bike than Yorkshire.

Living there myself, I know it’s one of the great areas in this country to ride a bike.

I took part in the Coast to Coast cycle challenge a few years ago and so I can sympathise with the challenge that lies ahead for many, both during the coming months of training and the event itself.

And I’m sure it’s not just the cyclists themselves, but the many people behind the scenes should be congratulated on their efforts to make an event like this happen.

Well done everyone, and very best of luck. Your efforts I’m sure will be applauded and appreciated.
