CRM's Bike Ride: celebrations@end of 270 miles in Kinnesswood

Carole crossing the finishing line in Kinnesswood at the end of five days riding

Crowds watching the final climb – echoes of L'Alpe d'Huez!!

Almost@CRM's journey's end – time to blow up some Teenage Cancer Trust 
balloons in a pub car park just a couple of miles from the finish

CRM reaches Kinnesswood after 270 miles (probably nearly 290 with diversions!)

Carole (CRM) has been riding to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust in memory of her niece, Esme Morris Macintyre, who died on 7th July 2013 aged 18 after a very courageous and inspirational nearly seven-year battle against the disease. You can donate here. More details here 

Carole has already met her initial target of £2500 with very welcome donations still coming in. The total climbs to over £3100 with Gift Aid.

Getting ready to start last leg from a rather grey Dunkeld 

The cycle track to Perth passes Dunkeld Station 
– a proper old fashioned affair with a fine footbridge

 CRM celebrates with some fizz! 

 Calum Morris Macintyre, Esme's brother, who rode the last leg 
with us having made a very early start from Newtonmore to meet us in Dunkeld
