Sue is a long term supporter of Rhino Revolution UK who has been making cakes and bead bracelets to sell in between her numerous cycling events throughout the calendar year to raise money for RRUK. The highlight of the season is a one hundred mile cycle ride that follows the route taken by the professional road cyclists in the London Olympics. Other events include local sportives in the New Forest and a couple of larger events further afield.
In 2020, she managed to get the first ride done, back in early March, before the Virus Lockdowns cancelled everything. In April, she completed a virtual ride of 100 miles over several days to comply with government exercise guidelines. However, she ended up completing a mammoth total distance of 250miles by the 29th of April!
For May’s challenge, she decided to do a triathlon: rowing 10kms (indoors), ride 50.3kms, then run 10kms making a total of 70.3kms and completed the challenge in a very respectable five hours forty minutes in total!
In June, she started to create masks on her sewing machine, again all for donations and she ended up making over 400 of different material designs.
She has been an amazing fundraiser and contributor to our work over the years and we really can’t THANK her ENOUGH for her dedication.
