Gran Fondo Conwy 20140

A quick thank you goes to the mums, dads, brothers and sisters, wives and partners who got up early today to drive us over to Conwy, and back. For standing at the tops of some of the climbs in the cold wind, cheering us on, and ringing their cow bells as we passed by. For having food and drink readily available to us, should we have needed it. For taking some fantastic photos of the days events and sharing them with others. For being there at the finish with proud, beaming smiles, along with food and refreshing drinks to aid our recovery. A special mention and thanks goes to Derek Sayer, who showed true sportsmanship by lending his light weight race bike to young Huw Owen for the day.

All we had to do was ride and enjoy ourselves……
