London to Brighton 2010

What a great day! Nine of us set off from The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton to cycle the 47 miles to Brighton on Saturday 19th June.

This year all our young supporters were busy with A Levels or GCSE’s so it was left to our more mature supporters – Adam being the exception!! After a few months of training Jane, Heather and I were still nervous about the distance as the furthest we had managed in training was 24 miles but we did it!!

Everyone was fantastic keeping each other going, Adam, Ian and Mark even managed to cycle up Ditchling Beacon! We were then greeted as we entered Brighton by Chris & Martin Cross and Margaret & Brendan Duddy with a welcomed glass of bubbly – thanks guys!!

A huge thank you to all those who took part – Ian Flight, Chris & Lynne Pressley, Jane Derrik, Heather Aherne, Adam Lynch , Mick Greenwood, Mark Brandon and me! Of course I must not forget our backup team who kept us going throughout the route Paul & Joy Lynch who were in the van and good old Julie Nelson who never lets us down in her car.

Thanks for a brilliant day – looking forward to next year when we should have our youngsters back and some new recruits. Brendan has already signed up and he was sober!!!
