Fiona who is 73 years old from Oxford is undertaking a bike ride from Dieppe to Versailles in June to raise funds jointly for The Bhopal Medical Appeal and The Iraqi Association.
Fiona’s route, devised by Donald Hirsch will be a low-traffic route covering 120 miles. Fiona will pay all of her own expenses.
Fiona has a passion for cycling as well as worldwide equality. Sickened by materialism, she considers that no one should have to live in poverty. In particular, she believes that every child has the right to a good childhood. “I would not normally tackle such a long journey by bike, but I want to try and achieve this in order to raise money for needy children” said Fiona.
“Please don’t expect me to go as fast as Sir Bradley Wiggins! At my modest 8mph I anticipate covering 25 miles a day, so the journey should take 5 days”
