Story

I've been cycling and walking with a hope raise £1,406 by completing a 1,406km challenge—the distance between Land's End and John o'Groats.

I'm raising money for APRS (Action to Protect Rural Scotland). My colleagues' fundraising efforts have inspired me to take on my own challenge.

By logging activities on a virtual challenge app to keep track of everything, I've been able to track my progress and it has been a great way to start cycling again, something I never expected, and build up my fitness.

Don't worry if you can't support the challenge financially, words of encouragement or sharing the fundraiser will certainly help too.

The challenge must be completed by August 31st 2024, and despite a few set backs (the bike, health, weather !) I'm set to complete the challenge in April.
