Since the first DGR we did together in 2017 Mark was always up for the challenge and enjoyed the banter on the day. Now the banter is no longer and Mark is not riding pillion anymore. To be honest it didn't feel right to be riding without Mark but then it was a charity that we both supported and I think Mark would want me keep riding for Men's Health and various cancer charities. He will be with me in spirit for sure.
On Sunday the 23rd of May, I'm riding 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.
keep on riding
Love C, E & W xxx

Great ride Roy !
This one's for you, Roy, for when you don't feel like getting up in the morning - get out and ride! Joyful abandon, summer sun, A thousand friends upon a hill. The bees are humming, The music drumming, Happiness and joy surrounds, Opened petals catching rays, Embalmed in light from longer days. But once the party starts to close, A tiredness creeps on weary souls, It's off to bed, to dream Of laughter, love and merry things. Yet do those flowers ever dread, The time of waking from their bed? Gorged by deep and nutrient soil, Kept safe from wind and ice and toil, Will they emerge into the night, Not knowing if the frost will bite, Or be met by warm embrace, Of spring sunshine upon their face? But up we must, to face the World, It is our duty, truth be told, And when that air refreshes us, A smile once more embellishes, As golden memories carry us, Once more step forth with head held high, Once more to ride, once more to fly.
good luck, ann and geoff
Mark will have been with you the whole way 🥰
I remember racing in those boats
