My story

[p]Hi all...[/p][p]I’m riding the Prudential in honour of my Dad, Bob ‘Brumus’ Smith who passed away 6 years ago 25th June... He was cared for in his last weeks by the Princess Alice Hospice and their team... Dad was a camera operator in the film business on many feature films and the thought of me in Lycra would have made him chuckle...!![/p][p]1/6/18: 50 miles training today... Legs feel a little stiff...! Only another 50 to do on the day...!!![/p][p]2/6/18: Thanks to everyone that has given so generously... It has really made me believe in people... Plus it now means I really have to do it...! [/p][p]5/6/18: Over £2000 raised with gift aid... Thanks everyone...[/p][p]11/6/18: Good training today... Completed 64miles and 2500ft elavation... Just got to keep it up...![/p][p]13/6/18: Shirt has arrived care of the PAH and it fits... At the moment...[/p][p]15/6/18: Another 60+ miles... Slowly getting better up hills...[/p][p]17/6/18: Went to the crematorium for Fathers Day... Another 20+ miles so 150 miles for the week... Happy with that... [/p][p]20/6/18: Looks like only small miles this week commuting on the bike but on a positive note you all have SMASHED my target of £3000... Let’s see if we can get to £4000 for the Hospice who bring help to patients and their families in the last weeks and days... X[/p][p]25/6/18: Good route recce today for work @ Pinewood but it was HOT...! Almost up to the new £4000 target we can do it... On another note, 6 years ago today was Dads last day at PAH and here... Gone but not forgotten X[/p][p]30/6/18: 140 miles this week and Leith Hill conquered so no surprises on the day... July 4th for PAH meet up and the famous lasagne... X[/p][p]4/7/18: Yes the lasagne was that good...! Great to meet the PAH team tonight... Ride on...![/p][p]6/7/18: Reached the £4000 target...! Thanks everyone... Commuted nearly 200 miles this week and have a cheeky ride planned before tomorrow’s World Cup match... Good luck...[/p][p]22/7/18: Final long ride with Andy... Over Leith and Box Hills... A bit of commuting next week then the big day... [/p][p]30/7/18: DONE IT...! Thanks for everyone’s support... It was an awful day for the weather but a great experience and easier than I thought...! Legs are stiff, the bike is filthy but wouldn’t change a thing... Cheers [/p]
