Total Panic!





Today I found this picture on the Royal British Legion’s Facebook page:




then I found this:

Hi All, just thought I’d introduce myself. I’m one of the Paramedics who will be riding with you to Paris. See you soon. Wiggy

and then this:

All these riders from the Pedal2Paris 2013 ride, seem to be on stretcher tables although the girl in the foreground looks quite jolly which is something…

I am not very brave. I don’t mean to be ungrateful or rude, but I don’t want to see a Paramedic soon, even though Wiggy sounds absolutely charming.  Do you think I am over-reacting?

In just 2 weeks, I’ll find out if I’m a feckless grasshopper instead of a worthy ant…

Oh no!

Yours thinking I should find a paper bag to start hyperventilating into,

And now I see that another new picture horror has just been posted onto the Royal British Legion’s Pedal 2 Paris Facebook page:

Pedal 2 Paris stretches


I think this is called ‘showing off ‘, don’t you? The cyclist is smiling for goodness’ sake.









  1. The solution to this is really quite simple – switch to a tandem with younger offspring up front putting on the pressure. If the two of you acquired a headset communication system, you could provide encouraging comments from the rear seat such as “time to put the pressure on – we’re falling behind.”

    When is that actual day you start rolling to Paris?

    • Dear Digby, I fear that Billy, my virtual coach would disapprove of this nifty move and I’d get a stern lecture.

      Kick off is Thurs, 4th Sept at 6.30 am. I can manage the Thursday & September bits but I’m not at all sure about the crack of dawn start.

  2. I would be quite reassured that there were some nice stretchers around to stretch out on if it was me going. Especially if the sun comes out.

    • I like being able to stand up/ sit down & what if it rains? Oh no – there’s another thing I have to worry about!
