Children in Need Bike Ride Success for JR Hopper & Co

On the 16th November a team from J.R. Hopper & Co Estate Agents cycled over the Pennines to raise money for Children in Need.

The day was dry, clear and fresh, perfect for cycling. With Pudsey Bear in their thoughts the team set off on the first leg of the journey, Horton-In-Ribblesdale to Ribblehead. With a brief break to enjoy the spectacular views the team then cycled on to the Dent T-Junction. Such good progress had been made by this point that it was bravely decided to extend the route by making a detour to Denthead. The team courageously battled the steep coal road past Dent Station cycling to the Moorcock Inn, Garsdale for well deserved ‘refreshments’. With the finish line in their minds, and extra fuel in their bellies, the last leg to Hawes was soon complete. The route in total amounted to 25 miles, with a lot of sizeable hills!!!

A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all. To date, we have raised £800 for Children in Need, a fantastic effort. Thank you to all who have donated so far. It is still not too late to make a contribution. Donate online http://www.justgiving.com/JR-Hopper-Co. Alternatively call into one of our offices.
