Lon­don lap

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

A PELO­TON of Kin­tyre ped­allers criss­crossed the cap­i­tal on last month’s Ride Lon­don.

Mar­jorie Leighton, Barry Colville, Ian Reid, Dou­glas Ferguson, Dou­glas McMurchy, Fiona Ir­win and Ian McGeachy were among 28,032 rid­ers who com­pleted the Pru­den­tial-spon­sored event last month.

In the past four years, £41 mil­lion has been raised for char­ity at the event, which was orig­i­nally con­ceived to im­prove health and fit­ness. So far more than 100,000 lapsed cy­clists have taken part. Mr McGeachy and Mrs Ir­win raised at least £1,260 for the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion (BHF) dur­ing Ride Lon­don.
