In Honour of Stanley Shand - for Alzheimer's Research UK and Alzheimer's Association USA
Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Business Partner and Best Friend.
Eternally a riding enthusiast, in 1974 Dad bought a road bike for my older brother - a Yamaha FS1-E, affectionately known as a "Fizzy" and I clearly remember complaining that it was not fair as I couldn't yet take to the open road - sorry Dad! But it wasn't long until I soon got my first taste of freedom with my Popsicle Purple Fizzy.
At the age of 83, having been my business partner for 37 years, Dad was no longer able to work due to his failing health caused by Alzheimer's. After seeing him in the care home with the other ladies and gentlemen, we are aiming to ride the length of the original Route 66 to raise funds to aid in the defeat of Alzheimer's using our four Yamaha FS1-E bikes.
