I'll also be posting here during the journey itself, so please check back regularly to keep up to date. Your support really will make a massive difference to me, even if it’s just a few words it all makes a difference! have literally just saved the day!

As i hinted at earlier, today has not been a good day.

Again, missing out some detail, essentially the trip lost a sponsor for reasons beyond that company’s control - which meant suddenly we were faced with having to spend hundreds of pounds on fuel and van hire that were going to be paid for before todays bad news.

Like a phoenix from the flames, Al, Morgan & Neil at the company behind this website) have stepped in to pay for the van and fuel.

This is a monumentous gesture and words fail me to express how much i appreciate it. I will be able to sleep soundly tonight after all.

If you havent been on their site to see what atomised are about you better get on it now after this news.

nice one

Hi Neil,

Sounds like your training is going well. I’m very impressed since ,my lack of coordination means cyclying the length of my street without falling off would be an achievement for me.

That’s really great of atomised stepping in to save the day all you need to worry about now is not being too saddle sore.

Good luck and looking forward to hearing all about it when you are done.

Hey Neil,

You certainly have been putting in the hours with the training….although the sight of your very first saddle brought a tear to Andy’s eye…i’m sure it was a very painful experience!!

Atomised have done such an amazing thing stepping in like that. I’m sure that’s such a weight off your mind.

We look forward to seeing you at the wedding, and will make sure there is a big drink with your name on it!

Good luck, love Andy & Julie xx
