June 2015: Bike-mad Carla McKenzie taking on John O'Groats to Lands End for DDMT

The DDMT is incredibly proud of bike mad Carla McKenzie who will be riding the highways and by-ways from John O'Groats to Lands End in July to raise funds to send injured service veterans on the ride of a lifetime.

Although Carla has been on or in a bike nearly all her life (her bike-mad parents first put her in a side car as a child) she found out in February that riding off-road was quite another challenge and that road riding is no preparation for mud, bogs and rocks on a track.  Despite falls, soakings, batterings and bruisings Carla is well on the way with preparations for the start of her journey on July 8th, her 51st birthday.  

To sponsor Carla so DDMT can send more veterans on life changing journeys with Bike Tours for the Wounded, as enjoyed by Ben Hilton below, please visit her Justgiving page
