Pete makes it to Paris
Arriving in Paris, Pete Burnham writes: I am pleased to be able to inform everyone that I completed the London to Paris cycle challenge! Once again I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has sponsored me.
There were originally 165 cyclist signed up for the challenge but only 113 started and completed it. Not achieving the required sponsorship target was the main factor in the reduced number of participants, so I am very grateful to have so many wonderfully generous friends, colleagues and family members. There were 61 different charities represented in our group and we raised a combined total of £163,978.
I would also like to thank you for all the kind words of encouragement throughout last week, they really did spur me on with the leg burning hill climbs.
My Just Giving page will remain open for a few weeks, so if you haven’t done so already and would like to sponsor me in pounds and/or pennies simply go to www.justgiving.com/peter-and-genevieve-london2paris to sponsor my overseas challenge.
Yours gratefully, Pete.
P.S. Does anyone want to buy a bike (nearly new, one knackered owner)?
