After picking Elliott up from school at 10.30pm on the Saturday evening (!) where he had just returned from a canoeing trip with a sore finger, he was a little reluctant to rise and shine at 07.00 the following morning and needed a firm shake to get him up. However, once up, his job was to make the bacon butties for breakfast and the ham sandwiches for the ride whilst I got the bikes ready. Elliott confessed that he was feeling a bit nervous given the commitment and money raised but with words of encouragement from his Auntie Jeanette (Michala's mum) we set off to rendezvous in Richmond where there were over 400 fellow cyclists. In brilliant sunshine, we were some of the first out of the blocks at 09.00 and, almost immediately, encountered our first challenge cycling along the Thames Tow Path where there had just been a high tide and quite a number of cyclists were slipping and sliding on the cobblestones which made it a bit hairy. However, we made good progress averaging 12.5 miles an hour and made only one pit stop to eat our ham sandwiches just outside Chobham. Suitably refreshed, we were then very pleased to see the 9 miles to go sign soon after we set off. We had been so lucky with the weather but literally two minutes before we made it to Windsor, it absolutely poured down but that couldn't dampen our spirits as we were riding high and powered on. We had the most tremendous reception from our support team and one very proud Aunt who would like to join both Elliott and me in thanking all of you for your great kindness, donations and words of encouragement which has now made the Bursary in Michala's name possible. Stephen and Elliott. Addendum to the above - his sore finger has, just this morning, been diagnosed as being fractured (!) so all credit to him.

A tragic story leading to a great cause. I think it's a fantastic way to remember someone who clearly had so much more to give. Well done.
