Caroline ends Teapot Trust Cycle Challenge with 58.5 laps of Arthur's Seat

Caroline ends Teapot Trust Cycle Challenge with 58.5 laps of Arthur’s Seat

Well done to Caroline Cook who has completed her marathon cycle – over 180 miles, doing 58.5 laps of Arthur’s Seat, smashing her intended target of 50 laps on Midsummer’s Day

Caroline wants to give particular thanks to all the people who came to cycle with her breaking up the monotony of the continuous circuits; Rob, Al S, Andy, Mike, Gordon, Tinker, John and Emma F, John Y, Craig and Julie and also those who have donated funds at the UK Virgin Giving page.

Well done all, what an amazing effort!

Longest cycle on the longest day

At this moment Caroline Cook is still cycling around Arthur’s Seat, in her bid to do 50 complete laps of the Edinburgh park between Noon today and Noon tomorrow – Midsummer’s Day.

Earlier, I spent a very enjoyable hour sat on a picnic rug watching Caroline and a few supporters whizz past in her bid to raise money for the Teapot Trust.  The amount of miles Caroline aims to get under her wheels is the equivalent of a stage in the Tour de France.

Pleas support her if you can – if everyone who reads this just contributes £2.50 it will help push her total over the wonderful 5K mark that Caroline is aiming for.
