Personal goals and sightseeing in lycra, McLean cycles north

Dropping in to the Beatles' sights in lycra gear and taking a detour through the Lakes District in memory of a fellow cyclist's father, Alistair McLean describes the progress of his cycle challenge from Land's End to John O'Groats.

I don't think that the FRSB or the PFRA should be part of the IoF. But then I don't think the Institute ever gave a rationale for why they sent them off to be seperate in the first place. Maybe if we understood that, we could understand why Paul thinks it would be a good idea to have them back.

Fundraisers must aim for more than legal compliance

Fundraising has an obligation to aim for best practice and transparency, not just comply with the precise letter of the law, says Alistair McLean.
