Tomorrow (27/06/14) the Pave to Cobble team embark on their incredible challenge, inspired by the Tour de France.
The team of six enthusiastic, dedicated cyclists will set off to cycle 500+ miles from Paris to Leeds with the aim of raising £10,000 for the Appeal.
With what started as a chat between friends in Pin bar in Leeds will this weekend become a reality with the team following the 2014 Tour de France route, but in reverse back to Leeds!
The team are aiming to return to Leeds next Wednesday in good time to watch Chris Froome start to defend his title.
'The decision to fund raise for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal was an easy one' says Dave Walton, one of the cyclists 'She was a Yorkshire woman with grit, determination and fighting spirit and is a real inspiration to us'
As the team count down the miles we will update the website with their progress.
The team have received an array of support from friends, colleagues and companies across the City including Leeds Brewery who have produced specially brewed beers and who iwll host the celebratory Street party for the teams return on Wednesday 2nd July.
