Chris Archibald from TPS Perth & Kinross is planning to cycle around Turning Point Scotland services all across the country in a week in order to raise money for Make it Happen.

The route might be picturesque, taking in Scotland’s Highlands, Aberdeenshire, Perthshire, Dundee & Angus, Strathclyde and Dumfries & Galloway.

This will see him cover a distance of a total of 623 miles, averaging 75 miles a day!

That’s equivalent to 4-5 stages of the Tour de France or nearly a third of the total length of cycling’s most gruelling race.

You can cheer Chris on and welcome him around each service on the following dates in August:

21st  Perth to Govan Road, Glasgow by 1pm, then Inverclyde by 3.30/4pm.
22nd Inverclyde to Ayr by lunchtime, Dumfries by 5/6pm.
23rd Dumfries to Dundee by 5/6pm (at the latest)
24th Dundee to Aberdeen by 3/4pm
25th Aberdeen to Peterhead for mid-morning, then Fraserburgh mid-afternoon.
26th Fraserburgh to Elgin. There for lunchtime.
27th Elgin to Dunkeld (staying with colleague)
28th Dunkeld to Perth Open Day BBQ at 1pm.

So far Chris has raised over £200 and is well on his way to his target but lets help him raise even more for this fantastic effort!
