DAY TWO (Friday 11th) ✅ Calais to Albert…

There appeared to be a lack of people on this route (not a bad thing) so it meant for a quiet ride today.

Do our followers think the French are avoiding the Yorkshire lads? 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 #TiKonki2 Keep it up lads, keep pedalling!

‘Cheers’ to you!

After completing day one.. Here are a few words from Andrew:

‘Thank you for all your good wishes and very generous donations. The support we have had, from family, friends, businesses and people we don’t even know, is amazing and very much appreciated.

Above all this challenge is to raise money and awareness for Yorkshire Cancer Research. My family, like many others, has suffered at the hands of cancer and we know the pain it can cause. Please share these messages with all your friends and continue to donate. Your support can make a difference.’

A well deserved beer in their hands, and a big ‘cheers’ from them, to you all 💙



Day One – COMPLETE! The Gents headed from Greenwich to Dover, all in time for the ferry (yep they made it) over to Calais.

135.1km ticked off, a couple of punctures and a lost coat… but now they are happy with a few beers! Not bad for a couple of Huddersfield lads. Check out a few pics from the day below

Leaving Huddersfield…

The Gents were waved off by Alan Roebuck and David Senior, original Ti-Konki Gents, in a very rainy Huddersfield today. Tomorrow morning Andrew & Paul start the cycling with London to Dover… we will keep you updated!

A sneaky visit from ITV Calendar, and a page in the Yorkshire Post also made this wet Wednesday a bit brighter!
