Day 92

I reach Wales!

Yes, I cross the border to Wales and the two clubs in the Football League Cardiff City and Swansea City both confirm visits to their new stadiums. (Huge thanks to Carolyn Williams)

I also have a GREAT sponsor for the day. Huge thanks to Mastercraft Cycles (below) for fixing bike at 30 seconds’ notice.

It was also fantastic to meet Georgina Lester in Abergavenny. Less exciting was the hostel (something out of the 70s!) and torrential rain. Georgina has been a huge supporter of the journey, a constant and consistent blogger and a great centre of influence within Ecademy

However, before I left England I had one final and very important meeting. I was welcomed by The Right Worshipful the Mayor of Hereford, Anna Toon in her chambers. She is keen to promote cycling within Hereford and beyond as well as being very sympathetic to the plight of the refugees. She had even been collecting for the Pakistan Disaster Fund that very week in a very concrete display of solidarity. She signed the shirt, I signed the visitors’ book. Seems like a fair swap! Both of us were grateful to Keith Witney for the intrdouction.
