Congratulations to Dave Bembridge who is now more than half way through his 1500 mile challenge having drunk himself from JOG to LE raising money for Cancer Research UK!
Not long before him Martin Sisley managed to travel in the opposite direction rumour has it it is tougher that way as it’s all up hill! Again well done!
A small posse headed to the Alps to tackle several ‘hills’ well done particularly to Dave Cusick who clocked up in the region of 14000 metre (yes metres!) of climb in just 6 days of riding. This was a tremendous experience and highly recommended! If that wasn’t enough John and Jeremy have travelled over the pond to the USA for a meeting (10 day meeting, whatever!) and pedalled some miles while there! Im sure many more have been out and about so lets have your stories!
Jim’s unfortunate accident last week is a reminder to us all that
- the roads are rubbish
- remain vigilant
- keep in control
We wish Jim a speedy recovery and look forward to welcoming him back to the Peleton
