Lucy's Big Ride, Day IX

Day 9 saw Lucy cross the border into bonnie Scotland after a wee 70 miles of cycling from Kendal. She's now covered over 500 miles and is still going strong!

Before we kick on with more food-related news, it's time to say some thank you's to those who made Lucy's adventure possible on two wheels.

BikeRight! helped Lucy with her bike and the route plans for the cycle. They're a thriving cycle training company based in Manchester. Every year they train around 20,000 people to cycle in variety of environments. They are also currently offering free adult training sessions (worth £60) which aim to help people to get on the road and deal with traffic. If you're thinking of cycling to work but are worried about dealing with busy roads, look no further! BikeRight! also run sessions in Merseyside and Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Simply Cycling is a Manchester charity and cycling club which aims to make cycling an accessible and enjoyable activity for those with disabilities. They have over 170 specially-adapted bikes - the most extensive fleet in the country. They were the first club with a focus on cyclists with disabilities to gain British Cycling's Go-Ride accreditation and have received a Community MBE from The Queen in recognition of their good work.

Team Glow is a Mancester-based cycling network for women offering weekly graded rides and charitable cycling tours. Cyclists from Team Glow make up Lucy's other team members on the LEJOG trip and they are raising money for Simply Cycling! You can support them here.

Thanks very much guys!
