“Frances loves to draw. For her, it’s a means of communicating to others the things she’s seen, done, enjoys, and is proud of. A picture can speak a thousand words which in this case is only too true.”
Whilst the Festive 500 is a solo affair for many, Frances chose to go the distance with her oldest riding partner, her dad. There’s nothing like five hundred festive kilometres to forge a bond. Preferring to avoid busier roads, Frances, who is autistic, started her rides before dawn to make the most of the early morning tranquility. To document the sunrises and wildlife she saw on her rides, Frances drew an incredibly detailed storyboard, complete with a brevet card to count up the kilometres.
