Richard's West to East Bike Ride

I have made a start!!

The West - to - East cycle ride has begun. At 11:14am on Sunday 6th I started out from Holyhead and reached Betswy Coed, despite lots of cold rain and a sore bum, about three and a half hours later.

To be continued!


My very gentle ride from Holyhead to Aldeburgh is finished. A total of 343 miles in six stages and these were completed when I found the time, usually when we were visiting family.

As most of you will know the last leg from Thetford to Aldeburgh was completed on Saturday and these last 50 miles turned out to be some of the most difficult because of a strong, cold headwind.

I should like to thank especially David (and Jenny) and John (and Val) for joining in with this last stage. Also two non club members Giles Smith and his pal Rodney who were good companions for the day. Also Andrew Read who joined us for lunch. It was truly gallant of David and John to join in and encourage me on.

Thanks to all who have sponsored us. We should, when all the money comes in, have raised about £580.

As you can see the photographs depict some strenuous periods during the ride - and the picture which best captures this is the one where David and I are finding difficulty leaving the pub!

Finally thanks as ever to Mary.
