Two Yate Librarians have cycled from Land’s End to John O’Groats, raising over £3,000 for St Peter’s Hospice
 Linda Parker from Yate and Julie Farrow from Downend started their epic journey March 27th and reached John O’Groats on the 11th April – a total of 1003 miles.
 Linda rode as a thank you to St Peter’s Hospice who provided a tremendous amount of care and support to her mum and Linda’s family.  At first Linda was planning the challenge by herself with the back up support of her husband Richard, but Julie decided she would go along for the ride.
Linda said ‘There were lots of laughs along the way, especially when our bikes were being blown about by the wind but we completed the outward journey without a single puncture, however on the way home the car broke down.’
