Margaret Biggs rides 100 Mile TT

Douglas Bader Foundation only this year launched their cycle racing team, Team Bader Amputees. Already inspired by the famous Sir Douglas Bader, team member Margaret Biggs set herself the challenge to ride a 100 mile time trial race against the clock. To finish and do it in under 5 hours, doing 20mph. Both goals were completed for this 64 year old Southport lass.

Margaret lost her leg following a severe traffic accident in 1973. A long time member of the Southport Cycling Club, and ex-paracyclist, Margaret has been able to make this year her comeback into time trialling again. “ I am over the moon. Absolutely delighted, I am so grateful for the support and encouragement from the Southport Club, and consider it a privilege to ride for Team Bader Amputees. I hope that my efforts will raise the profile of amputees in cycling, and encourage others that the sky is literally the limit.”
