Some of our volunteer crew members were delighted to meet Harry Lidgley on the evening of Tuesday 25th May as he made his final stop on Day 25 of his cycling challenge. The crew cheered him on as he approached the lifeboat station having just cycled 251km from Aberdeen to South Queensferry.
Harry is cycling the entire coastline of mainland Great Britain, some 7000km, or the equivalent of cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats five times, back to back. Calling in at 168 RNLI lifeboat stations along the way, Harry hopes to raise awareness and funds for each and every fantastic volunteer crew based around the coastline. Setting off from RNLI HQ in Poole on Saturday 1st May, Harry hopes to complete his epic Great British Lifeboat Cycle within 42 days, the length of time it took him and his team to row around Britain (Yes he does like a challenge!)
From everyone at Queensferry Lifeboat, we wish Harry the best of luck with the rest of his journey.
