On Saturday 7 July Roger Baird (73-78), Iwan Tukalo and Rob Wainwright are holding a 24 hour Spinathon for the Doddie Foundation. The three gents will be doing the whole 24 hour stretch and are looking to encourage others to join in.
“The idea is to cycle the distance from Doddie’s house to Joost van der Westhuizen’s house over the course of the 24 hrs, using the mileage from all 31 bikes. It would be great to get a Merchistonian team taking a bike and seeing some of you doing the difficult late/early morning slots, see how far you can ride and how much you can raise.”
Whether you can commit an hour or two, get a team together, or simply make a donation please do get involved. Each rider is to raise £100 in sponsorship for every hour they spend on the bike. The Spinathon will be taking place at the David Lloyd Centre in Corstorphine from 10am. To see the fundraising page click here.
