Congratulations to USA, from the LAHOW team.
We’ve got to hand it to Christo. He’s just a simple route-finder, given to moroseness and long periods of silence, but he knows his job. Yesterday’s route was by common consent among the finest any of us can remember.
And we were bathed in golden sunshine and caressed by a gentle breeze
By general agreement GORDON was hero of the day. He had not ridden a bike much at all for years, but came out and gave it his best. We were all worried that he was finding it just too easy, but luckily some of the steeper hills defeated him, but hey, there’s a future in cycling for this guy, and we’re also delighted that he has surpassed his fundraising target.
