Happy Easter 2014
Nice long weekend coming up!
Well done to Foxla who nailed his Half Ironman in Sunny Florida. Hot sticky day but all went to plan finishing in an excellent time of 5 hours 45 mins-which is about the time he will be queuing for a ride in Disney this week!
Top banana Foxy-well done
Bring on the Juniors!
Alexander (9) taking on the Eiffel Tower. During the May bank holiday, Alexander will be making his way from Dieppe to Paris, travelling over 200km off road on his bicycle. Departing Newhaven midnight on the Friday and a very very early start Saturday 04:30, day 1 will see 80 km done and the lions share left for the 2nd say with a distance of just over 100km planned. Final stage of the challenge will see a leisurely 40km stroll into Paris on the May bank holiday and hopefully enough strength to climb the famous tower at lunchtime
Great to see someone so small taking on such a chunky challenge and good luck to Alexander too!!
Are there more Events out there??
Good luck with training this weekend
Many tks and best

Well done and thanks to Jackie and friends for raising £650 with their end of season 'Swimwear Ski'
Great for someone so young to take the initiative and think about creative ways to others
Best of luck to Foxla who flies out to Florida tomorrow for a quick week with Mr M Mouse before taking on his ½ Ironman next weekend. Training has gone well and Foxy is looking nice and lean-hoping for a sub 6 hours!!
Looking forward to seeing a new tattoo once completed Foxy
Tonight Channel 5 9pm is a must watch!!!
Our inspirational patron, Jamie Andrew, with his incredible story of the first quadruple amputee to attempt to climb the 14,500ft Matterhorn. At least 500 people have lost their lives on the Matterhorn and each year some 1,200 are rescued from its slopes.
I’m sure you will remember clearly the powerful speech Jamie gave at our Globe Dinner so to see the man in action tune into ‘ The Limbless Mountaineer ‘
Many thanks for your support to O2e Jamie
Ollie is doing a great job with
Happy Friday 28/03/14
We’re back in play!
Juniors are back!!
Leah is getting involved in the 80th Anniversary of D Day and like Big Kev’s riders will pay her respects to the fallen.
Will ride off ferry from St Malo on 22nd Aug and head East following the coastline, and some of the 2013 Tour route, to end up in Omaha two days and some 160 miles later.
Day 3 will be a Beach/Battlefield tour where on 6th June 1944 160,000 soldiers landed over a 50 mile stretch in Normandy ( Omaha being one of the five major landing sites ) then a quick 30 mile spin for the afternoon ferry home.
Best of luck Leah xx
Doesn’t all have to be Ultras with miles and days of PAIN!
Jackie has been working the ski season in Cervinia and coming home on Sunday but before she leaves she will be taking the 5 chair lifts to the top of Picolo Cervino (3883 m) and skiing down-all very normal so far in a ski resort…..except….
Jackie will be skiing down in just a bikini……………………..
Great fun challenge Jackie and
