Mad Hatters

How about the entire length of the country?  These really Mad Hatters cycled all the way from Lands End to John O’Groats – a whopping 924 miles!  Pictured at the start of their epic trip are Adam Green, Gary Parkinson and John Kinirons, who bravely endured nine days of torture to raise funds for BVAA’s favourite charity, CLIC Sargent.

Suitably attired Rob Bartlett with his majestic catch in Florida, but can you identify what fish it is?  There’s £50 to the charity of your choice for the first correct answer.  Here’s a clue – it’s not a Barracuda.  Answers to rob@bvaa.org.uk

Other intrepid cyclists this issue are Peter O’Reilly and friends (MetalTek/Meighs) who participated in a 6 hour cycle ride in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust, helping to raise £100,000 towards a TCT ward at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Another team effort was put in by Adam Roper and his team of 7-a-side footballers from Phase Vision Ltd, Loughborough.  They must be lucky hats – Adam’s team won the tournament!

ITT Flow Control Ltd’s Roger Bartlett (no relation) first in queue for tickets at the new Olympic park near Hackney Marshes.

Congratulations to Kenneth Allan of Honeywell, Motherwell, who correctly identified that Abi Collins was pictured last time at the Borobudur Temple, Java.  £50 goes to the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, Glasgow.
