Friends Applaud Amazing Care Home Resident As She Starts 412 Mile Cycling Challenge

Rhoda-starts-the-challenge63 year-old Rhoda Gourlay, who has cerebral palsy and is registered blind, was joined by friends and care home staff on Monday 14th March as she began her 412 mile cycling challenge for charity.

Rhoda has challenged herself to cycle the total distance from Edinburgh to Buckingham Palace (412 miles) to raise money for a charity helping older people and other adults with a disability.

She will complete the gruelling journey by cycling a bit each day on a cycling machine at Drummond Grange Care Home, where she lives. At the time of writing, Rhoda had cycled 21 miles so far.

The cycle will raise money for Barchester’s Charitable Foundation, a charity that helps older people and other adults with a disability across England, Scotland and Wales by offering grants of up to £5,000.
