Peter’s pilgrimage from Scarborough to Scotland

Peter’s pilgrimage from Scarborough to Scotland

Wed 05 September

In August Peter Coates cycled from Scarborough to Scotland, a 700-mile ride, in memory of his wife Julie who sadly passed away from a brain tumour earlier this year.
Julie Anne Coates was 54 when she passed away after spending three years in total with cancer. She had bowel cancer first, which was removed and treated with chemotherapy, but brain tumours came later, resulting in more surgery and radiotherapy. She fought to the very end and passed peacefully in her sleep on April 19th 2018. 
Peter cycled from Scarborough to Scotland because he and Julie has always spoken about taking a trip to see 'The Watchie'  the cottage of famous Scottish artist Joan Eardley.
Once Julie passed, Peter promised to honour that wish by taking her ashes to The Watchie.
He decided to make the trip on his pushbike with her ashes. It was a 700-mile round trip from Scarborough to Catterline and it took him 16 days, biking by day and camping by night.

In total he has raised a fantastic £1.387.
Peter said of his pilgrimage: “We walked most the steep hills, then ran down the other side. But in the end, we made it to Catterline and back. We saw some lovely places and met even better people along the way.”
