Always make time.Wednesday 23rd
We had been wanting to join in with the Distinguished Gentlemans Ride for the past three years but as dad has been the main carer for my step mother we just never got it together "there's always next year"
Then as fate would have it, he fell ill and time ran out all too quickly, over just a few short months. I'll be riding one of his bikes this year and anticipate him being there with me in spirit at least.
Hopefully he won't actually turn up on the pillion seat. But who knows!!
On the 7th June this year, after a very short battle with cancer my father died. We'd expected him to live forever as you do i suppose. But within a few short months of being diagnosed, this awful disease took another life.Sunday 20th
It's hoped that by the fund raising, research and better awareness around men's health that many lives can be saved in the years to come. Please do what you can to help.
I'm Riding Solo for Men's Health in The Distinguished Gentleman's RideMonday 31st
On Sunday the 27th of September, I'm riding solo in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of Movember.
Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men that are suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that. So, before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I'm asking you to join me in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.
What a lovely thing to do, Albert would be proud to see you on his bike.
A great cause. (And a great bike!)
Enjoy the ride Laurence, hope it all goes well.
Good luck Laurence, glad you've chosen the more reliable bike!
Good luck Loz. For your dad. He’ll be with you. Look after the bike!
Ride proud my friend and be sure that with a twist of the throttle and every shift of the gear he will be along side in the wind over ear. The Sykes's
