Councillor cycles 900 miles

SNP city councillor Stefan Tymkewycz has completed a 900-mile challenge over Scotland’s 30 highest roads, a total ascent of more than 44,000ft.

The keen cyclist and former police officer has spent his summer weekends cycling across Scotland to raise funds and awareness for Malin Hospital children’s ward, near Chernobyl in Ukraine.

The town of Malin is in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, which is still suffering the effects of the nuclear explosion at the power plant 25 years ago.
