So, does anyone know who did the ride on a unicycle? Anyone here? It’s
up North, Roger maybe?

Yup, Roger was there. Also Steve Colligan, Des Devlin, Chris and Sam
Dobbie, Alan Chambers and myself. Des’ glamourous assistant, Gemma,
completed the ride on a bike but we don’t like to talk about that. :wink:

Roger, Des and Gemma rode on ahead while the other 5 stayed in a group.

Support (and catering) was provided by Steve’s equally glamourous
assistant, Wendy. Mid-ride football practice was provided by Tio - who
has way too much energy and will leave Roger in his dust as soon as he’s
old enough to ride a unicycle.

By the way, we only found out about the extra 5/6 miles when we reached
52 miles and thought we had 4 miles to go. Grr.

Mark.
