The feeling of "I'm doing this in memory of my mother, my father, a friend, or for those less fortunate than me” was present throughout. Riders were good spirited, even when vying for a lane through the traffic or on the wrong end of an accident! Our training paid off as we passed a number of younger riders, especially up the hills and over the South Downs! Having said that, our son Zach (perhaps the youngest of the day’s riders) somehow managed to pull away from his parents all too easily despite much less training; such is youth.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR DONORS! We reached our £2,000 ($3,250) target! Without YOUR SUPPORT we would not have been able to experience such a heartening event and the warmth of knowing that we have enhanced the chances for a street child in Uganda to forge a better path in life through education.
