Graham Poll Charity Bike Ride (posted Wed 16th Apr 2014)
Graham Poll is cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats and sets off next month to ride almost 1000 miles. Graham is doing this ride for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity who are providing incredible treatment and support for a lovely friend of his who at just 22 has stage 4 ovarian cancer. Unfortunately Sadie has had a poor couple of weeks and has had to be admitted back into hospital and it is hoped that she continues to fight this dreadful illness.

Graham's charity page which has Sadie's full story on it is :- http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/SadieRoyGraham

The training is pretty hard (150-200 miles a week)and very time consuming (10-12 hours in the saddle a week) and if you are able to help raise funds please follow the above link.

Marathon Results (posted Sun 13th Apr 2014)
Andy Humphreys completed his second London Marathon in a time of 3 hours 37 minutes despite struggling through the last couple of miles with that well known hamstring problem - well done on your determination to finish and also well done to Matt Bodimeade who cramped up early in the race and came in with a very respectable time of 4 hours 1 minute. Thank you to those that supported Andy and Matt in donating to the worthwhile charities that will benefit from their efforts.
