    Story

    In April this year I am taking on a solo challenge of cycling approximately 1500 miles on my road bike around Scotland in 2 weeks.

    Why ? To raise money to fund a cycling skills track at Coupar Angus in Perthshire, Scotland.

    Those who will benefit from this project are people of all ages and abilities ‒ from children on balance bikes all the way through to adults wanting to improve their cycling skills. This track will be a pathway to the development of many skills that can be transferred, to better bike handling, safer cycling on roads, to kids building up their skills to go mountain biking on local trails, or before using the existing skate park, which can be a huge challenge for younger kids to overcome. The cycling track will cater for more than just bikes, but also scooters and skaters too. It will be a free to use, all year round weather-proof facility for everyone to benefit from. It will also allow us to run coaching sessions and local schools can use it for P.E classes. The track will be a major feature at the annual cycling festival. It will be centrally located and easily accessed from Blairgowrie, Dundee, Forfar and Perth with a network of quiet minor roads. This fantastic facility will make it easier to promote exercise and wellbeing in a fun way to get people of all ages and abilities on bikes.

    I am currently cycling development officer, running the Cycling Hub in Coupar Angus and I am a keen mountain biker. The Cycling Hub has many aims, but it focuses on getting people of all ages and abilities on bikes. This is why I am personally fundraising to improve the town’s facilities and infrastructure. I am very passionate about cycling and know how much fun it can be, bringing health and social benefits.

    I have never cycled more than 95 miles in a day let alone over 100 miles a day on average, for 2 weeks. it’s not going to be easy, and hopefully you realise this reflects how passionate I am about funding the project and its overall aims.
