Along with 638 other cyclists, slit into four teams, with a different tone bell for each team, I am a World Champion at last!! We are the Guinness Book of Records champions with the largest cycle bell orchestra event ever! I even attempted a selfie with the green team! You can read more about it at: http://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/News/Newsroom/Record-breaking_start_to_Prudential_RideLondon_FreeCycle_s1_p19848.htm.
The RideLondon event was great fun & I am glad I did it, seeing the sights without worrying about the traffic was well worth the effort of getting up at 5:15 am to get to the Guildhall in London with my bike for 7:45 am. After the world record attempt we were free to join thousands of other cyclists of all shapes and sizes cycling round the FreeCycle route; the montage of poppies at the Tower of London was stunning, and cycling down the Mall without a care in the world was magical.
The really great news is that with your help I have as of today my JustGiving page with gift aid is worth £1,145 towards the great work of the Sanctuary. My page will remain open for a couple of months for any late donations; see: http://www.justgiving.com/davidrayttc.
