It was a week ago that I lined up at the alarm-clock destroying time of 5.44 a.m to try and complete the Prudential Ride London in 4 hours and 15 minutes.

Since then I’ve had many naps, eaten lots of food and wept every time I had to climb more than three steps in one go.

But now I’m fully recovered and just wanted to let you know what happened on the day and to say a last thank you for your amazing generosity.
