Gill Bullock from Wellington WI was introduced by Claire Burton. She gave us a very interesting talk with pictures about taking part in the Ride Across Britain by bicycle, from Lands End to John O Groats (LeJog!). She and her neighbour decided to take part together. She had to train for eight months before the event in September 2015. She rode 966 miles in 9 days, averaging 108 miles a day with the longest day being 128 miles. It was a fully supported ride with 800 participants and most people were raising money for charity. Gill raised money for the library at her childrens’ school in Wellington. We enjoyed her talk very much and Gill Busby gave the vote of thanks.
