Cy­cling trio show their pedal power

The Oban Times - - News -

THREE novice cy­clists from Oban ped­dled 105 miles over two stren­u­ous days to raise money for char­ity.

The trio, So­phie Han­d­ley, Mairi Kenedy and Sandie Duff y, who all work at Bell In­gram Es­tate Agents in the town, had very lit­tle prepa­ra­tion be­fore set­ting off on their ex­pe­di­tion.

They are still col­lect­ing do­na­tions, which are cur­rently over the £2,500 mark.

The money will be di­vided in to three lots and given to each of their cho­sen char­i­ties; MS So­ci­ety, Ju­ve­nile Di­a­betes Re­search Foun­da­tion and Ar­gyll An­i­mal Aid.

Sandie Duff y said: ‘It was re­ally good, but it was dif­fi­cult. We had to work to­gether as a team to push each other.

‘The sec­ond day was re­ally tough, I think when we got to Craignure we were the hap­pi­est peo­ple to ever be there.’
