Further information

This cycling adventure will tell the story of Mamie Martin, a Scottish mission worker in Malawi in the 1920s, who believed in the education of women. It will visit key places relating to her life and is designed to be inclusive and fun. The ride will travel to Tarbet, Loch Lomond, where Mamie grew up and then to Falkirk, the home of some of the Martin family. We will read excerpts from Salt and Light (Mamie’s letters) at relevant points along the way. The ride will finish at Milk, which is a cafe on the cycle/walk path in Newhaven, Edinburgh. This ride is designed to be inclusive and fun. It is not a race in any way. We have chosen traffic free routes where possible but there is some road cycling. It is presented in seven legs and the terrain and conditions of each are described on the corresponding Eventbrite event. There is a virtual alternative for those who would like to ride some of the distance in their own neighbourhood.

Who can take part

Anyone willing and able to cycle safely in a group or to do some miles on their own/with family more locally. The event is made up of seven legs, suitable for a range of cycling abilities. The route will be on paved roads or paths and some rougher terrain, but not mountain-bike paths. Booking and route details are through Eventbrite - http://storyonbikes2020.eventbrite.com/ Contact us on moira@mamiemartin.org to ensure that you get regular updates.
