As he prepares to embark on his 21st Great Yorkshire Bike Ride, Leisuredays and Caravan Guard founder, Peter Wilby, has set himself quite the challenge.

For the first time, Peter and the rest of the eight-strong team have set a fundraising target of £10,000, making this summer’s 70-mile ride on June 6, their most ambitious to date.
This year’s ride is extra special to Peter and the team. In 2013 a member of staff suffered an angina attack but has since made a full recovery, made easier by the support and ongoing work of Heart Research UK, one of the charities Peter is fundraising for.

He said: “After doing the ride for so many years I can’t not enter! It’s a great day hosted by a fantastic organisation with superb scenery and a great festival atmosphere.”
