Pedal Power Raises The Profile Of Yorkshire - While Boosting Fund For Good Causes

Doing their bit to celebrate Yorkshire, and confirm the region as a cycling centre of excellence, are keen cyclists from Linden Homes North.

A team from the Hessle-based house builder took part in this month’s high profile Carter Jonas Yorkshire Pedathlon, a 40, 70 or 90 mile cycle ride set against the stunning backdrop of Ripley Castle.

The second event of its kind saw around 200 riders from 40 local businesses saddle up to do their bit to help boost funds for local good causes, including the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Land Aid, and bring together cyclists and local businesses to celebrate Yorkshire produce – with food stations along the way showcasing food and drink from local suppliers.

Leading the Linden Homes North team was land director Andy Byrne, who was joined by strategic land and planning manager Jennifer Winyard, production manager Andy Devine and assistant quantity surveyor, Sam Amies.

Andy said: “This is a fantastic event which brings together members of the business community and keen cyclists in a fun and social climate, whilst raising money for good causes and profiles the local area.

“With a strong and growing presence in Yorkshire, Linden Homes North was delighted to have the opportunity to be part of an event which brings together so many people and celebrates Yorkshire.

“It was a great occasion to be a part of, with so much camaraderie and team spirit.”

As donations continue to pour in, organisers of the event are hoping to build on last year’s total of £15,000 raised.

Linden Homes is currently building in Harrogate, Market Weighton, Pocklington, Thorpe Willoughby and at other locations across the region.
