Team McKeown Pyrenees Coast to Coast Cycle
We are proud to support our very own superstar, Gillian Pettigrew, in this amazing charity challenge. Gillian left at the weekend to start this adventure but wrote a few words for us before she left.
"The day has finally come and we’re off on our own challenge: Team McKeown Pyrenees Coast to Coast Cycle, cycling the mountains of the Pyrenees made famous by the Tour de France. This prestigious and extremely tough challenge will see us riding the length of the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean.
Our adventure will start with superb views of the Atlantic coast before heading inland - and up! The foothills will provide us with a useful warm up before we move on to the mighty spectacular giants of the Pyrenees - including the legendary climbs of the Col d'Aubisque and the Col du Tourmalet.
We would like to thank everyone very much for all their support so far, it is much appreciated. Thanks also to our cycle shirt sponsors, MHB Consultants, Peritum Gas Engineering, Antonine Printing Inks Ltd, Reeta Fashions and T&D Cruickshanks Ltd who have kindly bought space one of our shirts that we will be wearing as we climb those mountains. Look out for the shirts on social media throughout the challenge."
We hope to have lots of photos to post upon her return to show you the incredible journey for Macmillan Cancer Support.
