Story on Bikes 2020
Friday 31st July to Saturday 8th August 2020.
Seven cycling days, a fun ride day and a rest day
Story on Bikes 2020 is a cycling adventure about the story of Mamie Martin and the work of the Mamie Martin Fund. On Fri 31st July, the cyclists will ride from Edinburgh to Blantyre, the home of David Livingstone ,a family picnic, in the spirit of Mamie herself, will launch the project on Sat 1st August. The ride will travel to Tarbet, Loch Lomond, where Mamie was born and then to Falkirk, the home of some of the Martin family. We will read excerpts from Salt and Light (Mamie’s letters) at relevant points along the way. The ride will finish at Milk, a café on the cycle/walk path in Newhaven, Edinburgh.
This ride is designed to be inclusive and fun. It is not a race in any way. We have chosen traffic-free routes where possible but there is some road cycling. It is presented in seven legs and the terrain and conditions of each are described on the corresponding Eventbrite event page.
