Doncaster group burn 11,700 calories on ride to Rotherham
Nine Doncaster Rovers fans cycled 33miles along the Trans Pennine trail on Saturday in time for the South Yorkshire derby at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
Between them, they burnt a whopping 11,700 calories, the equivalent of 41 slices of pizza or 57 pints of beer!
The event was a fantastic way to get Doncaster cycling, and was made even better with the free use of equipment and bikes thanks to DMBC and Club Doncaster Foundation’s bike library
Health and wellbeing coordinator, Scott Copeland commented: “I’m so proud of everyone who did the ride, the work ethos to make it through the 26 miles and keep everyone going was incredible to see.
“It was a huge challenge for us all, many of the group hadn’t been on a bike in years, but what was great to hear was that many of them want to start cycling now.
“We’re looking to put on more of these events throughout the year for anyone who is interested in challenging themselves, meeting new friends and adapting a new healthy lifestyle.”
There are a range of adult and children’s bikes and equipment available to borrow from Club Doncaster Foundation’s bike library, free of charge.
