Following a recent trip to India, actuaries Jeff and Margaret Rowney (née de Valois), former editor of The Actuary have decided to undertake two challenges in aid of The Equal Community Foundation
On 18-20 May, Jeff, a keen cyclist and son of ex-professional cyclist and chair of Herne Hill Velodrome, Bill Rowney, will undertake a long-distance ride in the Alps.
He will climb to an altitude of 4,000m and cover 200km over two days.
Margaret's challenge is less physical, and involves the creation of a large hyperbolic plane (essentially an object of only negative curvature) using crochet techniques.
Margaret (pictured) will be working on the construction until the end of May, and plans to crochet during her commute, and between meetings, in order to achieve the largest size plane possible before the deadline.
