These are

Tuesday 26th Feb
Ann Wilson - A Senior Cyclist Tours the World

At the age of 59, Ann decided that there was no time like the present and gave up her job to cycle round the world.

The trip began as an open ended round the World cycle in an Easterly direction and Ann finished having covered 1000miles.

There were several challenges along the way to deal with, but what stood out for Ann was the depth of human kindness she experienced throughout her travels.

The Worlds Longest Climb

Start: Dead Sea 420m below sea level

Finish: Summit Mt Everest

Paulines story will take you from the team’s starting point at the Dead Sea in Jordan, through Syria, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Nepal and finally to Everest Base Camp in Tibet. There, they exchanged bikes for crampons and climbed the great mountain itself.

Pauline puts the secret of their success down to ‘lots and lots of laughter, positive attitude and belief in the goal’.

All talks include a drink and Pizza Meal in the ticket cost.
