Its the final morning of riding & the hardest by far. We have to climb nearly as much today in 30miles as we did yesterday in 94!

The bodies are tired, the mind is tired BUT the adrenalin rush & excitement will carry everyone on towards DC

The group I’m with Mike, Jeremy, Paul, Lisa & the inspirational Maggie make for great friends & I can’t wait to be with them all @ the memorial today in DC. Its always a moving time to arrive there with thousands of people cheering you in.

Next blog from DC

PS Good luck to West Auckland & Dunston @ Wembley today in the all Northern League FA Vase Final.
