Part II Overcoming Obstacles

Janet Benefield, 68, who, despite not having ridden a bike since she was a child, has decided to embark on a 185 mile long adventure. She plans to ride the in Hebridean Way through the Outer Hebrides in May 2017, however she has had to overcome a fairly major obstacle in order to continue with the journey. In order to prepare for the challenge, she began improving her fitness and increasing her time riding a bike. She borrowed a 1990's Cannondale M400 from a friend and started increasing the length of her rides up to 15 miles. However, the training gave her a terribly painful left knee. An old back injury caused by lifting her husband Chris, resulted in an ongoing problem down her left side.
