Holyrood Poppyride

Poppyscotland held their second annual Scottish Parliament Poppyride this week with MSPs having an opportunity to cycle on a static bike for four minutes in an attempt to cover the collective distance between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The Poppyride is an attempt to raise awareness of this year’s poppy appeal. Poppyscotland provides life-changing support to our Armed Forces community and each year raises more than £2 million in November to support soldiers and their families.

I managed 2.48 kilometres in my four minutes.
