Farnfill woman in 500-mile ride for Oxenhope's Manorlands Sue Ryder hospice
1:00pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
A woman is tackling a 500-mile cycle ride to raise money for a hospice.
Linda Akrigg, near Keighley, will cycle along the Canal du Midi, which runs from Bordeaux on the Atlantic Ocean to Sete on the Mediterranean Sea.
The canal is 150 miles long and Mrs Akrigg (pictured), 60, is not only doing a round trip but will extend the ride to 500 miles by visiting some friends in another part of France.
Mrs Akrigg has done similar charity rides before.
