TELEVISION PRESENTERS Harry Gration and Amy Garcia got on their bikes in Leeds yesterday for a 241-mile tandem.
The pair from BBC Look North set off from Leeds Town Hall for their ‘Tour de Yorkshire’ challenge in aid of Sport Relief, and were cheered on by Yorkshire celebs Kay Mellor and Linda Barker.
Harry and Amy will ride the Yorkshire stages of the Tour de France to raise cash for the cause.
Amy said: “It’s been four years since I’ve ridden a bike so there’s lots of work to do.”
Harry said: “We’re really looking forward to the challenge and hopefully meeting loads of people as we go round Yorkshire.
“I feel sorry for Amy – because of the view she’ll have from the back of the bike!”
