Lots of miles and ££'s for LOROS

Sylvia Lawson writes: So Saturday 18th June started bright and early for the annual Leicester to Skegness Charity Rides. I met Karl Williams at Leicester Clock Tower at 5.30am. We took the obligatory photos and set off on our epic journey at 6.00am in aid of LOROS.

Heavy rain was forecast and we were keeping our fingers and toes crossed that the weather people were wrong!

The first feeding station was at the Geese & Fountain at Croxton Kerrial just before Grantham where we filled our faces with breakfast and headed off to the second feeding stop at the Malcolm Arms, Anton's Gowt near Boston where we refuelled again.

Karl and I finally reached Skegness Clock Tower at 12.40 having completed 94 miles and raised lots of pennies for LOROS. We then headed off to the nearest pub and celebrated in style with a (well-earned) pint or three!!!

I have to say LOROS did an amazing job of signposting the route with bright yellow arrows all the way. Even I couldn't get lost!

All in all it was a very good day and we beat the weather, the rain held off thank goodness.

(From all at the club - Congratulations Sylvia and Karl - Great riding and great fundraising).
