Lydia Franklin Route 66 book published
Over to Lydia...
Putting the metal to the pedal is first of all a book about an idea that expanded into an incredible challenge of cycling 100 miles a day, 2400 miles in 24 days from Chicago to LA on Route 66 to raise money for Love Hope Strength Foundation. It took me through 8 different states and saw me battle exhaustion, headwinds, torrential rain, freezing cold and the occasional bout of homesickness.
The support and goodwill from family, friends and strangers made it a journey of a lifetime, raising £6500 and awareness of the work of Love Hope Strength Foundation.
