Those of you who have been loyally following ‘The Awesome Hen’ will know that at in 2014 I had a sudden rush of blood to the head & signed up for the Royal British Legion’s Pedal to Paris 2014 Bike Ride .
Nearly 300 cyclists gathered at Greenwich
to start the ride and we all finished at the Arc de Triomphe 4 days later.
Look! They gave me a medal!
(no-one’s ever given me a medal before in my life!)
& a certificate!
Actually though, of course it is all of my kind sponsors and supporters who should have the plaudits. You all enabled me to raise £6,000 for The Royal British Legion in memory of WLS.
It was one of the very best experiences of my life; I loved every minute! Without your fantastic support, I could not have done it and I thank all of you very much indeed.
By looking on the web-site of the Royal British Legion, or by looking at the quick summary below, you can see how the charity uses money raised in donations to improve the lives of servicemen and their families.
By looking at my blog below, you can read about my efforts to learn to ride a bike properly and (LOL) turn myself into a long distance cyclist.
Yours encouraging anyone who’s thinking about doing something similar to go ahead and do it – it was fabulous!
