Despite rain, steep hills and a couple of punctures along the way the team were all in high spirits (they probably didn’t feel like it but I think what we saw was the relief that their miles of cycling was over and the thoughts of a long hot bath shining through!)
We sat outside in the sun hearing stories from the trip, including when ‘someone’ (there was much shifting of blame over who this someone was!) left the money bucket on the ferry, when Ray decided to cycle to the pub as there wouldn’t be space for five in the taxi, then when the taxi turned up they discovered it actually would have taken six people… meaning that two of the cyclists were doing extra work for nothing and how the tent poles came apart in dads tent so that by the morning the rain was soaking through to the inside of the “2 man” tent!
They all did brilliantly, managing 50 miles on the first day and completing the final 20 the second day. The total on the just giving page is now £2020 which is absolutely awesome! I don’t know whether this includes the cash from the Teenage Cancer Trust bucket but thank you so much to everyone who donated in whatever way, you have stunned us with your generosity!
