Round-Britain cyclist Maggie Scorer releases book about her 5,000-mile journey with Oscar the dog

A fundraising adventurer has written about the round-Britain cycle tour she took with her golden retriever.

Maggie Scorer’s Dog on Tour book will be officially launched in Aldeburgh – where she and Oscar began and ended their challenge in 2015 – on Thursday, August 24.

The pair covered 5,000 miles of the country’s coastline in six months – raising more than £20,000 for Bloodwise (formerly Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research) and Stillborn & Neonatal Deaths (SANDS).

Upon returning to Suffolk, Maggie was presented with the ITV News Anglia’s Pride of Britain fundraiser award.

Maggie, who also made history in 2014 by becoming the first woman to row Butley’s volunteer ferry service, will be appearing at the Aldeburgh Bookshop at 6pm on Thursday to launch the book.

It charts the round-Britain cycle, includes photos of the journey and costs £25 – with a percentage of proceeds going to charity.
