After the grim grind in 2007’s rain, I entered again in the hope that I would have good memories of a PBP. 2011 exceeded all my expectations: all sorts of weather – mostly good and lots of tailwind, a fantastic amount of support from local communities along the way and the companionship of fellow riders.
The Willesden support team of Vyv, Marianne and Stephen were superb. Once I was out on the road, I could concentrate on, and enjoy my ride as they had everything in hand. Turning up at the locations, food was efficiently produced and the bedding was ready for a kip, with more food and drink when you got up, help filling bottles etc. to get back on the road. Fantastic!!!
Also getting team Willesden round was a team effort: John Davies, Liam, Ray, Wendy and Yoshi all provided invaluable help behind the scenes, both before and after the event.
It all worked. Thank you.
