Big thank you’s to the team behind the scenes…
Finding a tandem: Thanks to Mary for recommending I speak to Paul and to Paul for putting me onto Graham who had a tandem! A chain of people without whom we couldn’t have done the ride. Graham lent us a superb bike and gave over two nights last week to set it up and make sure everything was adjusted. Also thanks to Steve and Tina for lending us their tandem last weekend for our training ride and offering it as a back-up.
Dun Run: Big thanks to James for being a fantastic front rider, training partner and for steering speedily and safely through both busy roads and pitch dark lanes.
Help at hand: Thanks to Chris with the van who took the bike and buckled back wheel onto Dunwich from the rest station at 2:30am. Thanks also to the fantastic gentleman (we can’t remember your name?) who drove us in his car to Dunwich. Without him we would have slept in a hedgerow with only leaves as shelter from the rain and more seriously we wouldn’t have been able to get to Dunwich beach!
Bringing it all together: Thanks to the team behind the scenes. Ian designed the wonderful Stuff4Sam logo that was on our t-shirts. Henny, MOD and Madeleine set up this website.
On the night: Thanks to Henny, MOD and the Chris’ for waving us off at the start and to Madeleine for travelling the 120 miles out to Dunwich, staying overnight and for welcoming us onto the beach!
