A LOVING father is taking on two epic bike rides to support his autistic son.

Rob Campbell, from Monk Bretton, will be departing on the first of his bike rides today, as he travels between three Yorkshire football clubs who’ve shown support to his four-year-old, football-loving son Harry.

Starting at Oakwell, he will head to Huddersfield Town’s John Smith’s Stadium before travelling to Bradford City’s Valley Parade - all to raise funds for the National Autistic Society.

“I did some fundraising last year and we got a lot of engagement and help from football clubs,” Rob told the Chronicle.

“Harry likes going to football matches so it’s always been a nice thing for us to do together.

“In order to say thank you to some of the football clubs who donated prizes for the prize draw last year and Harry’s love of football, I thought let’s cycle between the grounds to raise funds and raise awareness of autism.”

Next Friday, Rob will be taking on the second leg of his journey, starting again at Oakwell before visiting Rotherham United, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday.

Joining him on these journeys will be his dad Frank, who at 69 years old is still doing what he can to help out.

“He’s dusting himself down and getting on the bike again,” Rob added.

“I thought this would be something that could get me involved with cycling again - it’s challenging, but a good way of getting back into it .

“I’ve lost track of my training a bit, but we’ve got all day so it should be fine.”
