Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride Challenge

Team LUSU at the Finish with Medals

On Sunday, July 8th, Team LUSU cyclists - Lou, Sue, Stuart and Kel began the challenge of completing the Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride, which was set by Sue in February 2018.

Sue’s father, Brian Morrison, had been passionate about cycling and had completed the Manchester to Blackpool Bike ride many times in his lifetime (normally there and back in a day!). So it seemed a fitting tribute to Brian, who sadly had passed away earlier this year, that team LUSU would complete this ride.

On a very hot day, team LUSU had some great support from friends and family, and the event organised by Bike Events provided some fantastic volunteer marshall’s who cheered us on our way. So after a very long day, the 60 miles were completed, we crossed the line, feeling very proud and emotional.

A special mention to Coach Stuart, who not only accompanied Lou, Sue & Kel on the ride to Blackpool, then turned around and cycled home to Manchester……….in true Brian style!
