Connie James on an epic solo ride

Stambourne born and raised, Connie James has undertaken a mammoth challenge, making her way to Land’s End, she has completed an epic solo cycle ride to John O’Groats. She is raising funds for a charity called Backup. If anyone would like to sponsor her, it would be much appreciated and a big thank you to those who already have donated!

In Connie’s own words:

I have taken on the challenge in cycling from Land’s End to John o’ Groats in Sept 2021 (postponed from May 2021). We’re talking close to 1000 miles, over 9 days!

(Before embarking on this challenge, I could just about cycle 50miles a week to work and back!)

So big thanks for supporting me in this crazy challenge!!

It’s been a challenging year for all, so any pennies will be welcome to support Back Up.

Thank you x

So, dig deep, head over to Connie’s fundraising page and give generously!
