Bosom Buddy
I’ve just checked in with Elaine (240 miles for Brookie) and requested a pop-up jacuzzi to be at the ready on the evening of our final days ride. I feel it’s the least she can do!!

D’ya no, she’s blinking funny!!

Elaine, ‘What time will you be here on Tuesday? I’m going to take the day off work’
….hahahahaha, oh this girl has faith! And lots of it!

Me, (after stopping laughing) Don’t whatever you do take the day off work. I am not going to be there until sometime during the night! … Can you leave a key under the door mat cos you’ll be in bed by the time I get there!!!

Bosom Buddies

Oh George, she has your faith!!

Thank you for all your support and kind words.

Saddle up your steed, oil that chain, inflate those tyres and let’s RIDE!!!!

Cycle safe and … ENJOY!!
