Birstwith WI – Very Kind & Generous Group

Thank you to everyone at Birstwith WI who came to the talk tonight. It is so nice when people really understand and appreciate the talks. The questions were varied and interesting and the generous donation gratefully received. 

Thank you all very much. Special thanks to Arlene, John and Peter  for getting me there. Finally, thank you as ever to Tracey for supporting me.

Thank You: Coach House Sports Physiotherapy

I would like to thank the lovely people at Coach House Sports Physiotherapy for their kind donation of a full assessment for Tracey and I leading up to the USA bike ride next year.

I would specifically like to thank Amanda and Graham who put us through our paces yesterday. Also Charlene who arranged the day for us. I have to say that Amanda is significantly stronger than she looks. Perception however can be distorted at times and I would like to apologise for not being able to tell the difference between her thumb and her elbow! There was at least the distraction of Tracey’s yelps in the background to take my mind off it.

Seriously, these guys are professionals through and through. They looked at every aspect of our movements and posture. I am impressed in the extreme as to how they are able to spot problem areas and suggest solutions. The advice we received will not only optimise our performance but will help us avoid injury. I have started the suggested modifications today and will make them part of my everyday routine.

Thank you very much for helping us to be the best we can be.

The Harrogate Club – Supporting Médecins Sans Frontières




Many thanks to everyone who welcomed Tracey and I to The Harrogate Club tonight. I have given my MSF presentation at many venues down the years but this one is a real gem with kind and generous people who made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. Particular thanks to David and Andrew as well as the lovely ladies in the kitchen who made me a very happy little vegan tonight.
