Blog – Day 3
Thanks to the riders that were able to come to breakfast at The Kiln. Good to meet old and new 30/30 friends.
The weather for this week looks likely to improve from the windy and showery conditions the riders endured on Saturday / Sunday. The winds should reduce to moderate levels from the southwest which should lift the temperatures to nearer normal for the time of year. A view below of the morning sunrise that greeted Ellen Hughes on her ride Monday 29th April.
Events happened so far include Ellen Hughes’s Treasure Hunt at The Venture Inn on Friday Night and Elizabeth College Junior School Ladies who had static bike riders at M&S L’islet and St Martins all day on Saturday in the wind and rain.
Events happening in 30/30 world this week include the quiz being held by Trish De Carteret and the Wheely Tyred Riders this Friday 3rd May. It is a sell-out, but we wish the organisers and participants good luck. Team Wheely Tyred have also arranged to have static bikes at the entrance to Waitrose in the Rohais on Saturday 4th May. Wheely Tyred will have riders there until approximately 1.00 pm but if any other 30/30 riders wish to take over for stints in the afternoon then contact Trish at her usual e-mail address at Les Bourgs.
Steve O Connor has arranged to have a static bike at Co-op Grande Marche at St Sampsons on Saturday 4th May 2019. He will be there as long as his legs allow but would appreciate some cover. If ANY 30/30 riders wish to join him and share the fundraising, then phone Steve on 07839727772.
Good luck to Kirsty Davison of Bank Julius Baer who is planning to ride 30 miles each day of her 30/30 challenge. She has started her challenge sooner due to being away at the end of the challenge and so has managed five days so far. It has been done before by 30/30 riders but is a tough personal challenge, 900 miles in 30 days. Stay determined Kirsty, good luck, you can do it.
Well done to Stephen Burt, also from Bank Julius Baer, who is doing all five of the 30/30 challenges this year as part of the Bank’s celebration of 30 years in Guernsey. So currently Stephen is still doing the walks today and tomorrow as well as cycling one hour each day. Stephen is pleased these are the only 30/30 fundraisers that overlap.
We have a dozen jerseys left over if any riders are looking for spares. (Only riders taking part in the 30 Rides in 30 Days Challenge can have access to the distinct jerseys.) If you want a spare these are available at a reduced price of £25 on a first come first served basis.
