Here’s an update from Susan Walker – a member of St Ninian’s, Pollokshields – who earlier this year, joined by Fiona Wallace and Fiona Walker began the creatively named Tour de Lockdown with proceeds benefitting the work of the Trussell Trust.
I’m really delighted to report that we have been recording our mileage for 8 weeks now and, ahead of schedule, the accumulated total is now 2,205. I managed 573 of those miles – I had originally said I could do 200. To begin with I was managing 5 or 6 miles in half an hour but have gradually worked that up to doing 15 miles in an hour, 6 days a week.
I’ve just heard that shielding is to continue until the end of July but hopefully I might be able to get out on the road again in the next few weeks. Until then, I’ll keep peddling away on the turbo. And… I have shed half a stone in the last 10 weeks.
If able, you can still support the fundraiser for the Trussell Trust here: Tour de Lockdown fundraiser – it has nearly reached £800 from an initial goal of £600.
