Construction workers' uphill struggle for charity
EAST YORKS: A team of construction workers are tackling Britain's longest continuous hill as part of a 150-mile charity cycle marathon.
The team from contractor BAM Construction are working on the new Humberside Police Station in Clough Road, Hull.
Steve Thewlis, organiser of the ride, which started yesterday, said: "I've worked out a 100-mile route for the first leg of our journey from our offices in Gateshead to Thorpe Park in Leeds.
"The second leg from our Leeds office to Manchester is just over 50 miles, so I have included traversing the B6138, otherwise known as Cragg Vale near Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, rising 968ft over 5.5 miles. It is the longest continuous ascent in England."
