I am a disabled woman with Cerebral Palsy. This has affected both my legs and my right arm. Participating in physical events while trying to raise money for causes closest to my heart is at the best of times, extremely challenging and in some cases impossible.

Since 2020 Virtual Challenges have opened up a whole new world for me. To date, I have participated in several virtual challenges completing roughly 132 miles in total by using my trusted Motomed exercise bike! Now, I am ready and excited to show my support once again by taking part in a virtual challenge to support Poppy Scotland in the Poppy Cycle Challenge.

By using my Motomed exercise bike I will cycle 21.7 miles nonstop starting at the Peebles War Memorial and finishing at the Dalkeith War Memorial. I have chosen this route because I am familiar with the area and both memorials. Not only will this challenge test my mental resilience, but it will also push my Cerebral Palsy to another level.

I have taken on this challenge to show my support for Poppy Scotland to help raise awareness and much-needed funds for veterans and our Armed Forces.

Your support and any funds donated will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Briony Beattie
