A stroke survivor has completed a 10k outdoor cycling challenge for charity.
David Hartley suffered a stroke at the age of 42 which changed his life forever; however he hasn’t let this stop him taking on numerous fundraising challenges for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS).
He completed the challenge last week, cycling for the first time in 20 years rasing around £700 in the process.
The 10K course started and finished at the Garioch Sports Centre with support from the staff.
The distance took in various loops where he cycled around the local park, running tracks and the residential area on his tandem trike thanks to Adventure Aberdeen.
David trained for his challenge at Aberdeen Sports Village through Step Ahead exercise classes on a static bike.
Lyndsey Ross, co-general manager at Garioch Sports Centre said: “We were delighted to be able to support David with his challenge here at the Sports Centre and to help raise awareness of the incredible work that Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland do at the same time.
“David really is an inspiration and it was our pleasure to support his challenge.’
Katie Jones, CHSS Fundraising Officer said, “What an incredible achievement for David, it was really a momentous day.
“We were all thrilled to be able to support his efforts. ”
