RIDERS pedaling for pounds are already on their way to Wembley.
Before Argyle's first team take the next step in earning their way to playing under the famous arch, via the play-offs, with a vital game against Tranmere Rovers this Saturday, volunteers, including Argyle staff, Argyle Community Trust representatives and supporters, will begin a trek from Wembley Stadium to Home Park early on Wednesday morning.
Their aim is to arrive back at Home Park by 1pm on Saturday, in time to watch our lads do the business on the pitch at 3pm.
The riders are on a journey to raise money and awareness for three fantastic causes, Prostate Cancer UK, Argyle Community Trust and Argyle’s Youth Academy. The riding party has increased from 17 in 2014 to 30 riders taking on the challenge this year, meaning hopefully more funds are raised for the three charities.

Andy Yates, event co-ordinator, said: “The week leading up to the ride has been hectic, but it is fantastic to see the outcome. The benefits for charities involved in the event are massive and it’s great to see the event grow every year.”
Argyle goalkeeper James Bittner, ambassador for Pedal 4 Pounds, said:“It is great to support such a wonderful cause. I would like to congratulate all those who are taking part and feel privileged to help support such deserving charities. If Argyle were not in the midst of a play-Off run-in then I would be taking part without hesitation!”
