Sponsored Cycle... LG to RW

  • Good after noon folks,

    While I was tucked up asleep I have had email.

    Richard is back from holiday and sent this, my reply is also here.

    Hello Richard,

    I trust you had a nice holiday. 

    I am really looking forward the the fun kicking off again at LG, when or hopefully when the eggs hatch. 

    The drama at the start of the season was great to see and I know that many many people are virtually glued to the live camera. 

    Yes I have a couple of "wee grumbles" as do a few others that have followed the cycle. 

    I look forward to your reply and as always you are free to call me. 07841261411.

    Many thanks, and welcome back.

    Morning Brian

    I am just back in the office today, from leave since 25th April, to find myself “in the stocks”. I will address your “wee grumbles” as you put it, in due course, by the end of the week hopefully. I trust that's ok.

    In the meantime, very many congratulations on completing your epic cycle ride to Rutland. No mean feat under any circumstances, but with the weather you had to endure, it is all the more remarkable – well done.

    Whilst I was abroad, Team LG texted me to let me know you had arrived safely on that Sunday.

    Anyway, many congratulations and thank you.

    More anon.

  • Thanks for sharing this - good to know Richard is "on the case"!

  • Thanks Brian. I just hope that you both come to an amicable agreement and doesn't 'take the shine' off your great achievment.

  • BJ, thanks for letting us know you have heard from Richard,hope everything turns out well.

  • Thanks folks... I'm pretty sure a wee friendly chat over a coffee or even a pint, is all we need to arrange. :-)

    There are lessons to be learned all round here and it will be good, from my point of view, to take these forward.

  • Thanks for the update BJ and I hope things work out agreeably and amicably in a way that does not detract from your amazing achievement

  • Thanks for keeping us in the picture, so to speak, B. Jag.   Hope all can be sorted out, as you say.

  • MARY, I think you need to remind us again not to be posting on the SUMMARY thread.  I accidently posted there and I think other posters are finding there way there now also. And we really don't need that!  It is better if The Summary Thread is left to one person, namely YOU.  Keep us in line, Mary!

  • Thanks June, but as you know I am on holiday at the moment and can only get on line when we can get to somewhere that has WIFI, so I have only been checking the Daily Update Summary to see how EJ and Odin are doing when I can get on line.   I did update the Summary yesterday with the new video that Brian had put in and latest message he got from Richard.       I do see that Lindybird has posted in the thread so I hope that she sees this message and should be able to go into the SUMMARY THREAD and delete the message she left as it should still be showing the little red cross for her to be able to do that, as if there is no message posted after the last message she should be able to delete it using that red cross. 

    Other than that there is not a lot I can do when I am away on holiday and not at home and checking on the forum almost 24/7 ha ha....       

  • Sorry, Mary, didn't mean my last post to be pushy or in any way a criticism. Just a friendly reminder and a confession of my own goof.  Any time I have tried to delete, it takes away the message but leaves the space.  I'll try again using th "red cross" method as you describe.

    BTW you have done an excellent job which is much enjoyed and appreciated by me.

  • I'd like to echo June's view. Great job Mary.

  • Just seen Mary's post about my remarks being in the wrong place.....  H U G E   apologies, but have been unable to delete it entirely apart from leaving it blank.

  • lindybird do not apologise as if I had a penny for everytime I posted in the wrong place, I would still be poor lol :)
