YORK City Knights forward Danny Washbrook has completed his 380-mile bike ride - raising almost £2,000 for charity.

Following the suspension of the Knights’ season and having been placed on furlough from his day job, Washbrook set his eyes on a new challenge.

The Tour de Yorkshire was among the many sporting events to fall victim to the coronavirus pandemic, giving 34-year-old the inspiration to take up his own cycling challenge.

Cycling the distance of the race on his static bike in his back garden, the two-time Challenge Cup winning back-rower set out to cycle ten miles every day for 38 consecutive days to complete the 380 mile target.

The effort, which began on Monday, April 20 and came to an end yesterday afternoon.

At the time of writing, Washbrook has raised £1,895 for the NHS Charities Together and the Dove House Hospice, which is based in Hull.
