Lydia Franklin Route 66 book published

"Putting The Metal To The Pedal : Cycling Route 66 with Love Hope and Strength" the book chronicling Lydia Franklins epic charity event which saw her cycle the length of America's famed Route 66 is now available to buy. The book can be purchased (or gifted!) on Kindle via Amazon for £3.44 (with the paperback coming within the next four weeks) or as a physical paperback directly from the publisher Lulu priced at £7.99 from the links below.  Proceeds will go to LHS and both versions have a foreword by Mike Peters.

Over to Lydia...

Putting the metal to the pedal is first of all a book about an idea that expanded into an incredible challenge of cycling 100 miles a day, 2400 miles in 24 days from Chicago to LA on Route 66 to raise money for Love Hope Strength Foundation. It took me through 8 different states and saw me battle exhaustion, headwinds, torrential rain, freezing cold and the occasional bout of homesickness.

The support and goodwill from family, friends and strangers made it a journey of a lifetime, raising £6500 and awareness of the work of Love Hope Strength Foundation.

Ultimately it is proof that in order to really live you have to let go of the fear...
