A GROUP of determined women who completed Warrington’s This Girl Can 12-week exercise programme have pushed themselves even further by taking on the challenge of a lifetime.
Jean Booth from Penketh, Angela Cosgrove from Stockton Heath, and Jeni Grace and Karen Jones, who are both from Great Sankey, rode their bikes more than 200 miles, alongside their friends from the wider Cheshire Area; cycling their way from one side of England to the other.
The ride started with the group dipping their back wheels in the sea on the west coast at Whitehaven, Cumbria and ended with them dipping their front wheels in the sea on the east coast at Seaham.
Lou Shannon, from operator LiveWire, organised the challenge and supported the ladies en route.
She said: “When we reached the North Sea, the whole group were absolutely jubilant and there were many tears of absolute joy at the realisation of the sheer achievement they had accomplished.
“The challenge is traditionally completed in three days but due to work commitments, the This Girl Can graduates crammed their challenge into two days, making it a great deal harder.
“One of the riders, Jean, had so much fun she even joked that the group should complete the challenge in one day next time.”
