Two Men, Two Bikes, One Good Cause

On Saturday Wayne rode his bike from Wolverhampton to Aberdovey, looking like some bloke from the Tour de France. Mr J joined him on his mountain bike & rode with him from Welshpool to Aberdovey. An unlikely looking couple you may say & perhaps you could be right! Wayne was riding to raise money and to raise awareness for the Miscarriage Association. Mr J was riding to make sure that his mate didn't fall into a ditch or hit a tractor & to make sure that Mrs Wayne didn't fret too much! Mr J & I have not had to deal personally with the misery & heartache of miscarriage but we lived with the threat of it for a while. Mr & Mrs Wayne have sadly had to come to terms (if that is possible) with not one but two miscarriages & for them organising and completing this ride will help to reduce the number of babies who do not make it launch point. If you have been affected by a miscarriage or know someone who has perhaps you would like to make a donation? If so please click onto the link and follow the instructions!


The support party was awesome by the way & after the boys arrived in Aberdovey (6 hours riding time, with 17.5 mph average on one of the hottest days of the year & over the backbone of Wales....clicked the button yet?) we enjoyed a superb overnight stay at the Penhelig Arms. Go if you can, whether for just a meal or to stay over. Magic!

Just wanted to express my support for the Miscarriage Association. One their counsellors sat and patiently listened to me as my world fell apart one weekend 9 years ago. For that reason alone I'll be donating and I'm very happy to do so.

I have no idea why it's taking me so long t properly make it your blog and set up RSS feeds so I actually get to see when you post but anyway, I'm here now!

An ex boyfriend is a big CSC fan, if it's any comfort he looks like that in his bike kit but if it's possible even more odd. He's 6 foot 6 and like a bean pole, can you imagine what it looks like in lycra!

I'm glad they had such nice weather for their very worthy adventure :)

Wow, look at that amazing scenery. And, what a most wonderful cause to be riding for.
