A DAUGHTER is reliving her childhood memories after cycling more than 110 miles with her dad on a tandem bike for charity.

Kate Hurst, along with her dad, Joe, are almost halfway through their 250-mile Leeds to Liverpool cycle ride.

The pair, from Clitheroe, spent many an hour on the two-person bike after they had it custom-made in Powys, Wales, in 1993.

The family history researcher said the duo have jumped back on the bike to raise money for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation after her mum, Mary, was treated for lung cancer in 2013 and last year.

After treatment the 68-year-old was given the all-clear and is back to full health.

Miss Hurst, 32, said cycling the long distances has been enjoyable.

She said: “I have loved cycling ever since I was around eight or nine.

“We got the bike made at a place called Swallow Tandems and we cycled on it every weekend.

“It’s brought back some great memories. I remember we cycled about 40 miles in one weekend because we loved it so much.

“The way it was made meant the seat could be adjusted so when I grew to adult size I could still use it.”

The duo have cycled from Clitheroe to Liverpool and back and are planning their second route from their home to Yorkshire.

Miss Hurst said: “We were back and forwards from Rosemere with my mum and they were amazing with her.

“We really wanted to give something back as a thank you and we thought this would be a great idea. My dad and I have been practising since the new year and we’ve put about 230 miles into it.

“My legs have been aching but we’ve got the Yorkshire hills to come and I think they will be tough.

“Sadly because of the way the bike is built I can’t cheat and let my dad pedal, I have to do some of the work.”
