We would like to share an amazing achievement that staff member Val Gill accomplished on 7th May. Val took part in The Fred Whitton Challenge which is one of the most popular sportives in the UK and is also famed as being particularly difficult.
The Fred Whitton Challenge consists of a 112 mile sportive around the Lake District, starting at Grasmere and taking in climbs of Kirkstone, Honister, Newlands, Whinlatter, Hardknott & Wrynose passes.
Val who cycles with Broughton Wheelers completed this gruelling course in 11 hours 34 minutes. Everyone at Heart of the Lakes are super proud that Val completed this amazing challenge.
