Pam Faulkner was inspired to do a woman’s charity ride after a customer came into Green Bay Cycles in Winnetka which she owns with her husband Larry, to buy a bike for her trip to Kenya. Before the woman left the shop with her new bike, Pam had registered online for a trip of her own to Kenya. She enjoyed it so much she signed up for another charity ride in China before her most recent trip in Sept. 2017 that started in John O'Groats (the far northeastern tip of mainland Scotland) and ended at Land's End (the far southwestern tip of Cornwall). The 2017 trip was the topic of her presentation at the Evanston Bicycle Club meeting on Nov. 20.
