Guy Salmon Land Rover Wakefield was proud to be a part of Wakefield Hospice’s Sportive: The Dark Peak.

The Dark Peak took over 260 riders on a 57 mile hard route or 79 mile extreme route with a gruelling trek into the Yorkshire hills which featured the Holme Moss climb, a famous climb which was seen during the Tour de France’s visit to Yorkshire last year.

Guy Salmon Land Rover Wakefield donated the use of one of their Land Rovers which was used as one of the support vehicles at the top of the famous Holme Moss climb and towed the event trailer.

Danielle Norman, event organiser from Wakefield Hospice added:

"It is important to provide support vehicles that can get to cyclists if they need assistance and to provide the feed stations along the routes for the cyclists to refuel. Thank you to Guy Salmon Wakefield for lending your support to the event”

It is hoped the Dark Peak will raise over £10,000 to help fund patient care at Wakefield Hospice.
