Just two days after the Tour De France riders have demonstrated their speed and skill in the Calder Valley, Todmorden Firefighters will be taking to the saddle for a cycle challenge of their own.

And it will be no mean feat - their target is to cycle all the way to Todmorden’s German twin town Bramsche, and as they are undertaking the ride on their days off, they will have just four days to complete their challenge.

It will be hard work and hard riding, but the benefit will hopefully be a bumper sum raused for three charities, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Save The Children and the Fire Fighters charity, all close to the team’s hearts, explained watch commander and one of the cyclists, Carl Fielden.
