Cycle hub plan steps up a gear
Run raises sponsorship
Members of Dumfries charity Buddies got on their bikes to pedal for pounds recently.
Their sponsored cycle at Dock Park was a great success considering the weather wasn’t so good.
Buddies was set up in 2012 to support adults living with disabilities, helping them to achieve personal goals, make their own choices and live independently.
The Biker Buddies Steering Group organised the sponsored event to raise money for their proposed cycle hub.
Biker Buddies has run as a community cycle group for more than two years and has a healthy stock of cycles for able and disabled riders to hire for affordable donations.
The new hub will cater for all levels of disabled cyclists, including rides for the elderly in rickshaws.
Christine Crossley, secretary of Buddies, said: “Thank you to our steering group who have been superb at planning what they want the club to do and how to make the cycle group go further.
“The sponsored cycle event was a massive success and we would like to say a huge thank you to all involved for helping to raise a huge amount of money.” Graham Cameron, Kirsty McGowan, Kirsten Christine Crossley Nelson and
