David Culshaw is planning a charity cycle ride in May 2019, aiming to raise £5,000 for Banchory Paths Association. He is due to cycle from Banchory, Aberdeenshire, visiting five cities in Scotland using Sustrans Routes (National Cycle Network) for the entire journey. These are mainly quiet roads or traffic free routes. David intends to start on 22nd May and take 11 days over the cycle.
Banchory Paths Association is a Scottish Charity – SC030443 – whose purpose is to promote, develop and maintain the path network around Banchory.
BPA is presently fundraising for a major project to create a new (circular) footpath in Corsee Woods (a woodland on the North Western perimeter of Banchory). This will follow the line of two existing paths and will be constructed to a high standard to allow easy access in all weathers. Work involves considerable drainage work, building up of the land and finishing with a compacted granite/dust surface on top of a membrane/geocell base. The total cost of this work will be approximately £30,000.
It is intended that the path will be disability-compatible and be suitable for buggies, so that it will encourage people of all ages to explore and make more use of local woodland. All money raised on the cycle ride will go towards this project.

He really appreciates any help any individual or business can give.
