‘Le Tour de Tea’ for 02e
On Saturday Aug 28th I will embark on my 2015 O2e challenge:
3 cups of tea, one at each Bettys Tea Room over 71 miles…
I will be leaving the Bettys Tea Room in Harrogate at 8am for a 20 mile ride to the York branch for another cup of tea and a cake. At about 10 am we will start the 2nd leg of the journey to Ilkley, some 40 miles away, for another cuppa. The last leg is back to Harrogate for afternoon tea.
If you would like to join me at any stage of the ride, you are very welcome. We are going to be supported by friends and family.
For further information please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Well done Mrs-wouldn’t be the same without your annual rides-Kev said he’s up for the cake part!
Mr & Mrs Jellybean flew through the air at the Olympic Park!
Weather ( wind ) was kind this time which gave Ev & Mark the opportunity to abseil from The Orbit. Both are nervous with heights and it took some courage to lean back and trust the rope!!!
Finally on a cloudy but calmish day we set off for the Olympic Park, feeling a little nervous, we were told we were good to go.
Our harness' were fitted and we were ready (gulp) we sped up to the top to the platform, a quick briefing and we were standing on the edge (scariest moment ever) "Lean back and let the rope out" our instructor said, at this point we were thinking what are we doing. One more step off and we were off slowly descending almost serenely !!! Ten minutes later (felt like an eternity) we were down in firm ground but wobbly legs.
Thank you for your support
Mark & Evelyn
Well done Ev and Mark-defo out of your comfort zones-brilliant!
Well done to Gortex and Siobhan who chased the sun last weekend clocking up a huge 328k in one day!!!
Debbie and Frances ticked off their mileage bit by bit cycling from London to Brighton. A great achievement as not regular cyclists-as said many times before O2e is about getting out of YOUR comfort zone and we are not competing with each other!
Brilliant effort ladies-Girl Power!!
Our legendary patron Chris Moon blew the doors off on his West Highland Way monster ultra!!!!!!!
I believe ordinary people can do extra ordinary things.
To that end I’ve just run 95 miles continuously through Scotland’s toughest terrain to test a new artificial leg (pleased to say it worked and I did a record breaking time for me). I also want to support terminally and seriously ill children through a charity I’m honoured to be a patron of O2e.
Click to see the story and pictures https://www.justgiving.com/Chris-MoonWHWRace2015/ and please donate just a few quid if you can.
Hope you enjoy the photos, I’m getting loads of positive feedback about the one of the back of my head!
Thanks and Best
I never normally put out our just giving pages as you all do so much already but Chris’s challenge is just EXTRAORDINARY in so many ways.
Massive congratulations Chris, O2e is so lucky and proud to have you as our patron-thank you for everything you do for us.
As mentioned previously we have a Freddie Farmer Foundation visit planned for tomorrow. Going to have a spin on bikes before and after so welcome to come and ride ( will be a hilly looped route ) or meet at the centre.

I believe it is really important to see where all your hard work and effort goes and great opportunity to keep inspired and motivated to help such an incredibly worthy cause.
Many thanks as always and hope to see you tom,
