Hi Guys if my maths are correct then we raised a total of £ 5866.50 for NRAS, great achievement from all and thank you for doing that as a team was a good challenge because of the weather but something I will never forget, The Green Meanie
Hi Guys, have a new challenge for next year ! Just been over to the Isle of Wight for a few days and did some cycling, some great hills and lots of wind as usual ….met everyone from the Sandown & Shanklin Independent Lifeboat, these guys risk their lives for others and do it voluntary all year round and need donations to help keep them going, so you know where im going with this….next year was going to cycle the Island full circuit but I will be wearing a Lifeboat Crew outfit ( only me ), the team have given me an old outfit to train in but will have to modify it a bit, would like all you guys with me and see what we can raise for them, let me know your thoughts please, The Green Meanie
Le Classique Francais, finished yesterday, excellent organised Wiggle event, great people talked to so many other riders, great experience cant wait for next year, cobbles a bit of a bone shaker but we all safe and tired long day !
Long drive home yesterday after an amazing journey with everyone. Would just like to thank everybody involved all the riders and all the support team, they have all taken their own time off for nothing to raise money for a great cause. The cycling has been one of the toughest things I have had to do, the hill climbing and the descents were scary stuff especially in the rain, we had to change brake blocks out as they were wearing away and even some climbs we had to walk up and down it was so dangerous. We had about 6 punctures and a couple of crashes but everybody stayed safe through out, I think the rain tried to beat us into submission but didn’t win, some amazing scenery we have seen and Lands End final road was a relief. I have shared this with amazing people and I am lucky to have had this opportunity, there are loads of story’s to be told but that’s over coffee haha, Green Meanie ( in rest mode )
We made it yyyyyaaaayyyy feels good to get here fantastic weather today is the only day it hasnt rained on us…..spirits high…….looking forward to food and whiskey….400 miles DONE
Day 4 done…..hardest ride yet….full rain as usual beating on us and mountain climbs like you cant imagine…..ended up so dangerous in the wet that we had to do the last 20 miles on the main road was very scary…..Chris van broke down as well got it fixed in the end….back now at Snt Austel just 51 miles left all feeling it now
Day 3 done finished near Oakhampton 78 miles, was a nightmare day, rain and wind and really bad hills….we had to walk up and down one it was so dangerous with the wet, Iron Man Martin had a crash and so did DrQ both are ok. The weather and the hills are trying to beat us into submission but we just about holding in there ( I think ). Looking forward to food and rest now…take care all Green Meanie Out
