In the wettest summer anyone can remember, Anna March (BA 1995) left her job in London to cycle more than 3,000 miles around England, Scotland and Wales. Despite being a total cycling novice and never having fixed a puncture in her life, Anna tackled some of Britain's most challenging terrain on her epic solo ride. Taking in such scenic highlights as the Isle of Arran, the Lake District, the New Forest and the Pembrokeshire coast, Anna not only survived floods, big hills and bike-phobic Welsh farm dogs, but also managed to raise over £2,000 for youth development charity Raleigh International.
