Watford's Community Sports and Education Trust squad are pedaling 100 kilometres for charity on Sunday 10th June in the London Nightrider cycle event.
The Watford team, including Community Director Rob Smith and Head of Community Neil Hart, will cycle through the night in a bid to raise £5,000 to support 'Every Player Counts' - The Football League Trust's disability programme funded by The Football Pools.
"This is about raising money for such a worthy cause, because running a disability project is fundamental to a community scheme," said Watford's Community Director Rob Smith.
"Ten full-time staff from the Community Trust are doing the ride, as well as Watford supporters and some local companies who sponsor our Trust."
Over 3,000 riders are expected to join the London Nightrider charity event on Sunday, June 10, with the route taking riders past many of the capital's iconic features, including the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge and Piccadilly Circus.
"I'd like to say we've been training hard, but we haven't really hit the fitness programme yet," added Rob.
"The route is 66 miles, so hopefully we can get through the night and finish in time for breakfast!
And Watford's Community squad has teamed up with Cycles UK who have agreed to donate the bikes for the Trust staff.
Rob said: "Just £20 will fund a one hour sport session for a group of disabled children, and £50 will pay for a new wheelchair football for our disability programme, so however small a donation it would help tremendously."
