Elaine’s pedalling raises further funds in France
Elaine Styles, Chair of Vision Care for Homeless People, has raised another £1,488.00 from her pedalling power – this time in France.
Cycling 751km in eight days, and climbing 15,868m she burned an estimated 12,743 calories, knowing that the sponsored challenge was raising much needed funds to open a new centre in Manchester.
As Elaine said, “I am very proud to have completed such an amazing challenge. I completed all the climbs which at times were very challenging - especially as France was also having a heat wave and temperatures reached 43C. The scenery was absolutely stunning. The longest climb was a constant 19 km up the Col du Tourmalet, but this was followed by an amazing 25 km down. The constant steep downs caused their own problems with hands going numb from pulling on the brakes.”
