We Did It! Part 1

We did it – total Mileage 423 miles. A little bit of blood, lots of sweat and a few tears, and one very sore rump. I am thinking next year that sitting on a razor blade may be more comfortable way of raising money.

Good news is £72k is pledged to the group for the completing the ride, so a real sense of achievement! 

Friday was fancy dress day – some great outfits, but an unusual amount of men in tights.

My token effort of a pink wig left me looking like a cross between a 70’s pop star and a very dysfunctional middle age man ~ no wonder the French smile as we cycle past. (I also found out the French word for poof is “poooof” ~ regularly shouted as we cycled past the villages).

It was nice to get one of the team members back who dropped out the previous day ~ Mr clutterbuck added humour and this slowed us down nicely!
