60 miles – Suffolk countryside. 3 pedal powered biking birds.
On Sunday 13 June, myself and my fellow pedal powered friends Ali Clarke and Helen Skinner will start from the Out & About office in Claydon, and head for the Out & About office base in Lowestoft.
Out & About supports disabled children to become fully included in their chosen, local leisure activity, the ordinary, everyday activities that all children and young people can take part in.
We each enjoy cycling but have not attempted anywhere near this distance. We’re currently training together to improve our fitness ready for the big day, gaining confidence out on the roads and pushing ourselves so that it won’t seem such a hard slog. Now we just hope for a dry day!
We will be led by friends Margaret & Philip Hancock who have previously worked and volunteered for Out & About. They are keen cyclists used to going for miles and miles, and will witness the mileage on the day as well as keeping everyone on the right track!
Keep checking back for pictures of the day – and we’ll be sure to update you on how we did.
