Grannies set for cycling marathon
Two Scottish grandmothers are preparing for a 6000-mile charity cycling marathon across Canada.
Penny Weir, 70, from Aviemore, and Mavis Paterson, 69, from Dumfries and Galloway, plan the trip to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Their four-month bicycle adventure has been timed to coincide with Ms Paterson's 70th birthday this year. She said that people thought they were "crazy" but added she did not think they were doing "anything special".
The women met 16 years ago after Ms Weir heard Ms Paterson on the radio talking about a 8,000-mile cycle she had completed.
Anyone could do it - it's just down to sheer willpower, stubbornness and discipline - and a desire to raise money for a great cause
