Pedal For Pudsey - Swindon

Pedal For Pudsey - Swindon

Ben Prater of Wiltshire Radio is attempting to complete 100 miles by the BBC Children in Need Appeal night !

In one week, 7 days, Ben is aiming to cycle 100 miles around & across the town on an eight seater pedal bus!

"I'm no cyclist. I've not actually owned a bike since 2013 when I sold it to help pay for my children's nursery fees". - Ben explained before the event started.

So Monday afternoon, Ben and his pedal bus arrived at our store! 3 of the store members; Graham, Tony & Jason - took to the saddles and set on their way - riding from our shop towards the Orbital Shopping Centre
