An "adopted Scot" is about to embark on the challenge of his life, cycling solo coast-to- coast across the two countries he calls home. Gordon Paterson, from Haddington, will pedal the length of Britain and the breadth of Canada in an epic test of endurance covering just over 8000 miles and averaging 66 miles a day over 77 days.
It’s all to support Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada after the conditions killed or affected his closest relatives within three years. Before the challenge begins Gordon will be raising awareness of his epic journey at the Haddington Farmer’s Market on April 28 from 08:30 – 13:00.
