Day 1 – taken by a pro!

Arthur Edwards (look him up!)  is with us for the ride this week, so this is a) a pro shot, b) the closest you\’ll get to seeing my face!

 

I wore this shirt to respect the Canadians with whom we rode in 2012. It seemed the right thing to do 😊.

Day 1 – Vimy Ridge

 

 

 

If you\’ve not been, go. Photos don\’t do it justice, but it\’s here anyway.  (a bit like the grand canyon in that respect).

 

I was given the honour of reciting the exhortation here today.
