Farnhill woman Linda Akrigg to cycle 500 miles for Manorlands hospice
8:00am Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
A Farnhill woman has set out on a 500-mile cycle ride to raise money for a local hospice.
Linda Akrigg will cycle along the Canal du Midi, which runs from Bordeaux on the Atlantic Ocean to Sète on the Mediterranean Sea.
The canal is 150 miles long and Mrs Akrigg, 60, is doing a round trip route but will extend the ride to 500 miles by visiting some friends in another part of France.
Mrs Akrigg, an avid cyclist, is doing the challenge to raise money for the Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice at Oxenhope.
Mrs Akrigg has done similar charity rides before, including riding 200 miles around Ireland to raise money for Barnados.
