Pedal and Paddle Edinburgh to Exmouth

Posted on August 16, 2013 by Stuart Newlands | 0 Comments

...Papete for short!

Our good friend Alistair Cope will be setting out on Saturday 17th of August on quite an adventure.  He will travel from Edinburgh to Exmouth, by pedal or paddle.  He'll be leaving from Holyrood, Edinburgh at 08:30 on Friday 16th August!  He will paddle his traditional Flaxland canoe (Pashley bike on board) on the canals & rivers and where the water runs out, he'll be back on his bike, towing the canoe & kit behind him.

300 miles of water - 111 locks - 390 miles of land
It should take about 4 weeks, with the final day from
Exeter to Exmouth
Saturday 14th September

Don't forget to come and see him as he arrives in Exmouth.  

Alistair is raising funds for three charities, with the following split:

Headway Devon 45%
Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education 45%
Blesma 10%
