On Saturday, 8 riders enjoyed 40 sun filled miles as a tribute to the wonderful Billie Fleming, who died in 2014, aged 100.
In 1938, Billie, on her Rudge bicycle, cycled every day for one whole year, clocking up almost 30,000 miles. On a typical day, she would cycle between 80 and 100 miles on her 3 speed bicycle.
It goes to show that you don’t need an expensive bike to enjoy cycling, just some motivation to give it a go! In return you can be rewarded with a great tan, a sense of achievement, some new cycle pals and adventures to new and beautiful places not far from your home!
