Joanna completes the Fred Whitton Challenge and exceeds her fundraising target.

Jo said 'A great event, really enjoyable day out and rode with some lovely people. Finished in just under 9 hours (8h56 of which 8h22 was riding time- I was feeling empty at Gosforth after 80 miles so had a rest and 3 ham sandwiches and 3 cups of tea then was good to go again, over Hardknott etc etc) . Want to do it again next year now in sub 8!'

Thank you Jo for undertaking this challenge and raising £1415.00 for School Aid India. Thank you too to all of you who were so generous in sponsoring Jo, watch this space!
