Two summers previous I had set out to attempt to ride non-stop from St David's, Wales, to Lowestoft. A total of 360 odd miles, I was to travel just ahead of a team of guys from the East of England Ambulance Trust, cycle Paramedics based in Norfolk. As a fund-raiser organised by Darren Rutterford, the Team Lead, (pictured below,) they were covering the distance as a relay. Four cyclists per team. Two teams.
caught me up. With my rescue plan now about to leave me behind, I had no choice but to quit and fell in with them. 136 miles in one hit, therefore, remains my longest day.....to date.
