Hullo ! The dust is settling and for the fantastic four their achievement is just started to sink in – and hopefully their muscle soreness is receding 😊
Things are not quite over though, and we have some news, some opportunities and some updates. In no particular order they are:
Fundraising – we’re so close!
We have raised £11,384 online at JustGiving, with a further £1,740.43 offline that comes to £13,124.43. With the money put in buckets during the ride we are currently sitting on £14,292,36 so we are getting really close to the £15,000 target.
It’s not too late to donate or to ask your friends to donate to your JustGiving pages. If you don’t have a JustGiving page – then Donate here. We would be delighted to hit the £15k target before we close the page at the end of next month (30/11/2021).
Ride Jerseys – £40
We have a five jerseys left over in L, XL, 2XL. If you want to grab one, email us I Want A Jersey! stating your preferred size (from the list). If you have a second choice, please say so. First come first served, although only payment (details will be sent by return) will secure.
Ride Gilets – £40
We have had sufficient interest in ride branded gilets (our minimum order is 10). These can also have your name across the top of the back. If you are interested, then email us I Want A Gilet!. Please state your size (use the jersey guide at size chart).
Ride Bib Shorts (£50)
We can order more bib shorts if we get orders for 10 or more. If you are interested in a pair, check out bib shorts and email us at I Want Some Bib Shorts! stating your preferred size. If there is enough interest, we will send you payment details.
All clothing orders will need to be made and paid for by the end of the month (31st October)
The accounts we used for HJR will be closed down in the coming weeks. All content will remain online, but we will stop posting to them soon, and disable them. The website will remain online to June 2022, and then change to https://herojoglerelaybike.wordpress.com (to save costs). Make a note of this if you want to look up information after June 2022.
And there’ll be more!
There’s still more to come, but we’re not quite finished setting it up.
Tony writes : Lands End and the end of our journey. What an unbelievable venture with Jon, John and Neil. My bike has brought me circa 1,400 miles and we have raised circa £14,000 for our Charity Help for Heroes. It will take a little while to digest the events of the last 22 days. The JOGLE book has been signed by the three of us who made the entire trip John O’Groats to Lands End. My thanks to all who made it happen and to those of you who gave us support along the way and donations to H4H.
John writes : Well we did it! 4 strangers started this crazy ride 3 weeks ago with the support of Julie, and Graham our support drivers, and PJ and Lesley on the end of the phone. Myself, Tony, Jon and Neil have cycled almost 1500 miles to raise funds for Help for Heroes Official So far we’ve raised almost £14k
Neil: Day 20 (17 riding) ended in Plymouth. For me, the ride has ended as I have a pre arranged holiday booked elsewhere. Although not doing the final legs to Truro and the finish line it was a great experience (1292 miles covered, far in excess of the standard 874 miles) for which between us all we raises just shy of £13k so far for H4H.
I will not forget my “family” (JB, JK and Baggers) of full distance riders in particular nor the day riders and hope to see some if not all of them on BBBR22.
By the way, South Devon although being very delightful to look at the views it is bloody lumpy to ride!
