london to cambridge again

And so another year comes, and so too another challenge.

2007 was a massive achievement with the London to Cambridge Cycle Ride, with so many people taking part. The team spirit, the sheer effort and the feeling of success was overwhelming, but it does have to be said that organising a group this size was a nightmare, and the sheer effort and cost of getting almost 60 people entered into the ride, getting bicycles, uniforms, helmets etc was very, very demanding.

So the challenge for 2008 was less but more !

Four years running we've done the London to Cambridge Cycle Ride, and every year we've encouraged new and different people to take part - 2008 is no different.

Keeping the numbers down has meant fewer new names, but what quality has joined The Red Pouches this year ? New in is Peter Reynolds, doing the route on a tandem with his son. Peter (Willy) Ford is another addition to the team, and keenest of all to rekindle his past association with a PO bike is Alec Pybus, the new General Manager for Royal Mail in East Anglia.

Sunday 27 July 2008 - 50 miles in the saddle in aid of local charities, but somewhere along the route, 50 miles became 60, and somebody forgot to tell us !
