I will be 60 this month (24th August 2020) and have been cycling on and off for several years.

Exactly two years ago hubby and I relay cycled from where we live in Saltash, Cornwall to Edinburgh in Scotland (for the Fringe Comedy Festival), to raise money for Mind.

Having our bikes stolen in Leicester and our car broken into in Leeds did not deter us. Replacement hire bikes and equipment courtesy of Giant Cycles at Rutland Water helped us finish the challenge, and the publicity around the unlucky incidents actually helped the fundraising (over £5k) so it sort of all worked out in the end.

Big kudos to Halfords as well who helped us replace our cycles and equipment at 50% discount. Not including the horrible stuff, we had a great adventure and met so many lovely people.

For my 60th we’re taking it easy; four days in North Devon cycling the Tarka Trail. We both ride hybrids and are not speed freaks. We are also both vegan so it’s all done on plant power.
