Steve McMurray said, 'My good friend Trevor said one day, lets cycle from Inverness to Dunblane. Typical me, I agreed first and panicked about it later. Needless to say I'm now hooked on cycling. I thought I would celebrate my first ever cycling even by raising some money for CHAS. Many thanks to everyone who has donated to this worthy cause.'
