Three Scottish teenagers have completed an epic cycling challenge from Edinburgh to London in support of the Cure Parkinson’s Trust.

The ride was dubbed ‘Pedalling Palace to Palace’ starting at Holyrood Palace and ending at Buckingham Palace.

The trio of girls emerged from the Scottish capital on Sunday 28 June arriving in London on 5 July.

Thomasina Bowyer-Bower, one of the cyclists whose father has Parkinson’s, told the Scottish Herald: “The route from Edinburgh to my dad [in London] is a journey I have done many times before but always by train.

“The route connects me with my Dad and I decided it is now my turn to try and make a difference.”

Thomasina and her friends, Anna Egerton-King and Jemma Stewart, are all 16 and have been training in between their GCSE exams. The trio are just £500 off their £5,000 overall target.
