We did it!

The Headlines982 miles, 9 days,10 nights in a tent, 54,000 ft of climbing, over 45,000 calories burnt, munched 36 pork pies, drank 50 lts of Powerade and swallowed countless ibuprofen! So far I've raised over £14,000 and our team has raised £35,000!

I need to say some thank you's

Richard, Mike and Guy - The best team mates you could every wish for. Without your efforts before and during the ride I wouldn't have made it. Great memories that will stay with us forever.

Pitch - Thank you to everyone for putting up with me for the past 6 months. The constant whinging and moaning about various injuries and medical complaints. Pablo and Spider, for their unique "reverse" motivational psychology.

Carole, Joe & Emily - team mates knocking on the door at 7am, bikes in the hall, eating breakfast in lycra and generally not being around for the past 5 months! Carole, thanks for picking us up in Lands End. X. 

Threshold & Bath Rugby - Mac, you've got a brilliant team of people who organised a superb event. I wasn't sure if I had "more in me" but I did! Tricky, you motivated me before and during the ride, you should be very proud of what you achieved. I only want Quins to beat Bath by 1 point from now on!

Sunbury Slackers - Aide and the Gang. Not sure when I shall return, but I will!

Everyone who has sponsored me - Thank you very much for your very kind support and donations. Your messages on our just giving pages really helped us through some difficult moments. In the words of William Yeats: Think where man's glory most begins and ends, and say my glory was I had such friends!


Take care and thank you
