Cy­cle hub plan steps up a gear

Run raises spon­sor­ship

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - DISTRICT NEWS - Jackie Grant

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
