Kirkcudbright Hotelier Chris Walker from The Selkirk Arms along with Alistair Cooper and Ian Proud have raised over £2800 for The British Heart foundation having completed a 7 day cycle from Kirkcudbright to John o’Groats.

The trio cycled 444 miles over seven days cycling through Ayrshire, Arran, Argyll and Bute up to the Highlands at Fort Augustus then on to Tain and Tongue before reaching John o’Groats last Saturday.

Chris told DGWGO, “It was a fantastic trip, the weather was kind to us, the scenery was gobsmacking, the cycling was tough in places but we had it to do. I just want to thank everybody who supported us, this has been a huge achievement for me and I can’t thank my fellow cyclists and my wife Sue, who drove our support vehicle and looked after all the logistics, enough. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
Alistair Cooper, Assistant Manager at the Selkirk Arms Hotel told us “I’m glad we trained for it, we had some aching legs after day 4 but cycling through such stunning scenery took our minds off it, would I do it again, absolutely.
