Loveday & friends complete their charity ride to Paris
Here is his report:
LONDON TO PARIS CHARITY BIKE RIDE, JUNE 2016 - WE DID IT!!!!!!
After three grueling days in the saddle, after 1,000 training miles on the backroads of Norfolk, after 315 miles between Crystal Palace and northern France, we arrived in Paris at 5.30pm on Saturday afternoon. Not too much fuss, as most tourists were pre-occupied at the water level of the Seine rather than our efforts!
It was a huge relief to complete the challenge, but an enormous amount of fun. We made a few friends along the way, had a few laughs, inevitably broke a few hearts but ultimately achieved the objective of raising a meaningful amount of money for two Norfolk charities.
Before we close the file and thoughts move towards another challenge (running the bulls in Pamplona anyone??), we wanted to take the opportunity to say a huge 'Thank you!!!!' for all the support we received. During the more difficult stages of the ride, knowing we had so many people at home behind us was a real motivating factor. So thank you sincerely for your contribution to the success of this adventure. Collectively we have all made a difference to families in our community.
Once, we have rested and are able to walk without resembling a bow legged cowboy, we all look forward to raising a glass with you.
