Participants of the Foundation’s Home Goals group cycled a combined total of 3,632 miles as part of the ‘Tour de Lockdown’ challenge during November and December.
‘Tour de Lockdown’ was one of three lockdown initiatives launched at the start of ‘Lockdown 2’ by the Foundation, and encouraged participants to clock up as many miles as possible on their bikes throughout November.
26 riders contributed to the total, which was enough to take the group from Doncasater to Santorini, with weekly stop-offs in Frankfurt, Rome and Corfu.
Among the participants was Belles manager/Rovers player Andy Butler who made regular contributions to the group’s total.
Nick Gillott, Community development manager at the Foundation, has praised the Tour de Lockdown initiative for encouraging the Doncaster community to keep active.
“The main thing was encouraging members of our Home Goals community to keep active during the second lockdown, and we’ve been really impressed with just how far they’ve managed to cycle.
“The total distances have been much higher than we anticipated and shows just how much effort the group has been put in. It’s been a fun project to get involved with”
