My story

[p]For 4 days over the August Bank Holiday I shall be joining 30 other cyclists tracing the Funeral Route of Queen Eleanor (died 1290) from Lincoln Cathedral to Westminster Abbey. The route passes close to my home in Stamford and visits the sites of the remarkable crosses that were subsequently erected by her widower King Edward I. The ride ends with a visit to her tomb in the Chapel of the Shrine of Saint Edward the Confessor in Westminster Abbey behind the High Altar.[/p][p]In 2019 I successfully completed and thoroughly enjoyed the 200 mile ride (but sleeping on hard church and church hall floors was less fun). However we were well supported and ate a lot of cake together![/p][p]The QECR is organised by the Friends of The Connection at St Martin's-in-the-Fields Trafalgar Square in London, to raise funds to support the homeless. The Connection works with rough sleepers in Westminster, which has the highest number of rough sleepers in the UK. Overall the work is geared to help people, who often have complex needs, off the streets and into safe accommodation. By encouraging each person to address the issues which caused their homelessness, and by valuing and working with their strengths, The Connection aims to help individuals to gain skills and confidence, allowing them to make lasting changes in their lives. [/p][p][b][i]Please dig deep to support this very worthwhile enterprise and to encourage me to keep pedaling to the very end.[/i][/b][/p][p][url=https://www.queeneleanorcycleride.org/history]https://www.queeneleanorcycleride.org/history[/url][/p][p][url=https://www.queeneleanorcycleride.org/the-route-and-itinerary]https://www.queeneleanorcycleride.org/the-route-and-itinerary[/url][/p][p][url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleanor_cross]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleanor_cross[/url][/p][p][url=https://www.westminster-abbey.org/abbey-commemorations/royals/edward-i-and-eleanor-of-castile#i17850]https://www.westminster-abbey.org/abbey-commemorations/royals/edward-i-and-eleanor-of-castile#i17850[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
