Happy Friday 19/09/14
Sure Patrick’s pub in Beckenham had something to do with last minute decision to go-travelled all day Friday in a mini bus, cycled all day Saturday, travelled home all day Sunday!!
Saturday was a full on assault of the mighty Mont Ventoux-3 climbs-in words of Skells ‘ I have no idea how I did it, two of the climbs were just relentless-2nd climb nearly killed me ‘.
Super effort Skells and he managed to raise a few shekels for O2e in the process-brill-nutter…
D Day is nearly upon us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Once again Big Kev and his team have done an incredible job-so much planning has gone into to this monster challenge-so many people to thank-it is the sporting highlight of our O2e year.
If you are riding please have one final push on sponsorship-if you have raised funds for O2e this year and it’s difficult to go back to people for more make a donation to Kev’s page as your £350 is absolute break even budget for the trip and other such charity trips charge considerably more (£1k+).
So many people are giving up their time to help you ride-let’s make it worth their while-thank you in advance for whatever you do- PLEASE PLEASE Click Here to make a donation if you can
110 finely tuned athletes ( and DD ) will be cycling off the ferry on Wednesday from Calais with Normandy, some two and a half days and two hundred and fifty miles later our final destination.
So many new riders this year, many never cycled 100 miles in one day. The profile is challenging but I know the O2e team spirit and pure determination will once again be the winner.
An absolute monster team challenge and memorable journey awaits………….
Huge thanks to Jenks for jersey sponsorship.
Very best of luck and a safe ride to all our ‘ Extraordinary Cyclists ‘ Vive L’O2e!!!!!!
Have a great weekend and looking forward to seeing many of you on Wednesday-What’s this year’s Tour Song???? Answers on a postcard….
