Rugby supporters have been praised after raising more than £4,600 in a gruelling 100 mile challenge.
Batley Bulldogs chairman Kevin Nicholas joined fans in a completing a 70-mile sponsored bike ride.
Ex-player Iain McCabe was also part of a team who cycled along the canal from Leeds to the Anchor pub in Gargrave - and back.
The saddle-sore group were then joined by other supporters to tackle a 30-mile sponsored walk form Silsden, near Skipton, back to Batley in time for the Bulldog’s clash with Barrow Raiders.
A total of £4,615 was raised, which will go towards building work at Batley Bulldogs’ Mount Pleasant home.
Club general manager Paul Harrison said: “The effort was amazing and thank you to everyone who donated.”
Supporter Richard Drake, added: “I thought we were in for one of those days when Ian McCabe got a puncture in the early stages.
“But we all agreed the cycle from Skipton to Gargrave was the hardest part as there was no path or mud track, just cycling through grass , which was really difficult.”
Fan Sam Haigh won a raffle at the club’s home game for guessing within a minute the bike ride’s duration of 20 hours and 16 minutes.
Sam shocked club officials by donating half his £200 prize to the project.
The club also thanked Factory Direct Bikes in Birstall who kindly serviced bikes before the ride and NL Commercials in Batley who supplied a free support vehicle.
