Pedal to Pete's..
« on: June 26, 2015, 01:13:17 AM »
..My nephew is just about to undertake a marathon bike ride. OK, it's not a LEJOG, or JOGLE (Lands End - John O Groats), but the next best thing.

Gloucester to Scourie, taking in historical family places on the way. Stockton Brook (Stoke On Trent) where my mum was born and grew up (she died last year from heart problems). Blackpool, where my brother lives. Dunoon (via the Gourock Ferry Rob!) where my cousin lives, and on to Scourie..

A total of 750 miles. That's quite a bit on a bike, and uphill all the way!
He's collecting for the British Heart Foundation https://www.justgiving.com/PedaltoPetes/.
If any of you feel like donating, would be appreciated, a penny a mile would be 7.50, about the price of a couple of pints, or a packet of fags!

He's just passed the 1 a mile mark, 750, would be great if we could get that up a bit..

Thanks all..

..now reached Scotland, and cycled through to Prestwick beach today. Seven days completed now, 6 to go before he gets to Scourie..

Better start tidying up soon!..
