Supporting the Cyclists

Last week our local community attended a charity cream tea. The purpose of these refreshments was to cheer on a group of cyclists. They are in the middle of a cycle ride from Lands End to John O Groats to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer. The ride has been organised in memory of a friend who sadly died about this time last year. Her son, daughter and grandson are amongst the cyclists taking part. They were greeted with cheers as they arrived for a brief stop en route.

After a quick hello and refreshments they were soon ready for the road again.

Gerry was a much loved member of the local community and is greatly missed. This trip was first planned in the later stages of her illness but had to be postponed. One thing is for sure she would be so proud of her family and friends both riders and loyal supporters.
These last three photos are taken from their Facebook support page.

As you can see they are getting on well. Good luck to them all on the last part of their journey and in all their fundraising efforts.


  1. Admire their strength to ride that far - such a worthy cause. Hope you have a good week ahead Maggie.

  2. What a wonderful thing to do in memory of your friend, hope they raise lots of money for this devastating disease.
