Holiday Park Manager Pedals for Scotland

Holiday Park Manager Pedals for Scotland

Congratulations to Abbeyford Leisure's Geoff Little and the team from Companion Care Vets and Pets at Home for completing the classic Pedal for Scotland freshnlo 47 mile cycling challenge last weekend.

The St Andrews Holiday Park General Manager kept in touch throughout the Glasgow-Edinburgh bike ride with regular Tweets, completing the challenge in a steady 7 hours. To see these, and to find out just how much money was raised, go to our Twitter page.

"The funniest bit was watching two fellow cyclists, one on a unicycle and the other on a penny farthing, and no, they didn't beat me!" says Geoff. 

He added: "The toughest part was the hill, a Munro surely, just after Avonbridge. But crossing the line at Murrayfield made it all worthwhile, it was a real privilege to enter the stadium - what a place to finish!"

Geoff thanked all those who generously supported him explaining that all the money raised will be shared between two charities: Hounds for Heroes and Support Adoption for Pets.

Hounds for Heroes provides specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the UK Armed Forces and Civilian Emergency Services. Support Adoption For Pets is an animal charity which helps give abandoned and homeless pets a second chance of happiness.
