Steph Scott from Aberdeen decided in January to sign up for the London to Paris cycle challenge. Not being much of a cyclist it took 20 weeks of training to get to the right level of fitness, and in doing so she clocked up over 1300 miles during the worst winter and spring in the northeast of Scotland. But on 5th May she set off from Blackheath Common, with a small group of 14 others, as part of Discover Adventures open challenge, to cycle the 317 miles to Paris.
Steph suffers from non epileptic seizures caused by flashing and bright lights. Ironically, bicycle headlights are one of her main triggers, and unfortunately Steph did have a seizure in Paris and was unable to cycle the last mile of the trip. This highlights why she chose to support Epilepsy Research UK. She has raised over £2,000.
