A group of visually impaired athletes will take part in a coast to coast bike ride to raise money for a growing sport. The riders are cycling the Way of the Roses from Morecambe to Bridlington to raise money to support teams playing Goalball, a sport aimed at visually impaired people. Among the riders will be women’s Great Britain squad member Brittany Stead, from Cleckheaton. “Everyone involved in Goalball is tremendously dedicated to the sport,” she said. “We want as many people as possible to be playing which is what this fundraising is all about.
“We’re training hard and, despite the nerves, are very excited! It’s a beautiful route and we can’t wait to get on our bikes.” Visit www.justgiving.com/GoalballUK-c2c to make a donation.
