We couldn’t be doing this without the help of:
We are delighted to have the support of Altura – the UK’s leading cycle clothing and luggage brand – who are providing us with clothing and panniers for the journey.
Our challenge was also voted the winner in the seventh round the British Airways Great Britons programme – as a result, British Airways will be flying us and our tandem to Sydney so we can complete the Australia/New Zealand leg of our journey.
We’ve also had huge support from many Rotary Clubs along our route. We can’t thank everyone but certain people really deserve thanks for going the extra mile to help organise our visit/talks and our lodging and high calorie intake – in particular:
Canada: Jen Kormendy (Tsawassen), Denise & Jerry Fiddick (Ashcroft/Cache Creek), Alan Pineo (Chase), Rob Marshall (Salmon Arm).
United States: Scott Ringer (Whitefish), Sheila Rice (Great Falls), Scott Daily, Laurance & Paul Perry (Jackson Hole Supper), Karen Bonomo (Rock Springs), Randy Dabb, Robert & Louise Hunt (Rawlins), Dan Fanning (Carbon Valley), Traci Oliver (Denver LoDo), Karl Krueger (Castle Pines), Lori Hughes (Mead), Peter Ewing (Boulder), Paul McLain (Colorado Springs), Carol Bronko (Pueblo), Dennis Edwards, Don & Debby Welker (Angel Fire), Prudy Abeln (Taos), Harpal Khalsa (Espanola), Joe Player (Santa Fe Del Sur), Sandy Poppers (Las Vegas NM), Linda Whilhite (Clovis), Ken Clowes (Lubbock), Bill Core (Abilene), LV Coffee (Abilene), Vickie Mauldin (Western Fort Worth), Bruce Heller (Allen), Dean Nix (Addison), Randi Duckworth (Wills Point), Magin La Grave (Tyler), Clay Hollingsworth (Monroe), Curtis Moroney (Natchez), Mark Mathis (Brookhaven), Oliver Hitt (Collins), Nadine Archuletta & Butch Brown (Hattiesburg Sunrise), Danny Mason (Lucedale)… TBC
