John Lomas-Bullivant cycled for us.
In the midst of his tremendous effort to raise funds for Sarah's Rural Library Fund and thus accompany us, John wrote in his call out:
"I'm still hoping that there are some of you out there, like me, full of good intentions, but who always need a couple of shoves to do what they had intended to do!".
And, in the end, he ran 308 km!
" Happily the weather was great and there were no major incidents, it was, as anticipated, a combination of pain, pleasure and much needed perseverance!! Time in the saddle was 16 hours and 50 minutes.....and yes it is sore ;0
I shared the experience with over 2,000 other riders and we saw some stunning parts of the English countryside. There was a great atmosphere and camaraderie.
Happily none of the hills defeated me and the total distance climbed over the two days was 2,609 metres....luckily not all in one hill. Next time I'd like to do it in Holland!!
My max speed was 60km / hour....that's the brief joy of going downhill.
Thanks you so much for all your support - it is hugely appreciated.”
And we, John, appreciate with you the effort that lifts us and the dream that drives us.
