The task for the support crew was bigger than expected but from 5.30am to 7.30pm each day (at least) they worked non stop servicing the needs of every rider.
Although most of the riders trained very hard for the event, it was still a tough journey. There were many joining the 100 mile club for the first time, and then did it the next day as well. A lot of riders had to look deep within to cope with the mental challenge as well as the physical one.
It was ROF’s best achievement to date to get all the riders over the finish line, bar a couple of injuries.
Today we are relaxing and taking stock of what we have achieved with a large glass of Rose, we pledge to update you with all the data for the riders, to include best and worst moments, personal bests and photos to show the pain and enjoyment of the riders over the 4 days
If you have thought about donating to our cause but haven’t, please do. We have seen the effort they have put in, we have seen the tears of joy as well as pain, they definitely deserve some recognition!
If you have already donated, we would like to thank you for your support because without you the event would not work. I’m sure if you had been at the top of some of the hills they cycled up without stopping, you would look into their eyes and donate again.
We will leave the link here in case you fancy a couple of clicks to show your support.
