That is me now in Edinburgh heading to the USA for our Cycle to Syracuse. Over a year of preparation and huge effort by Colin Dorrance the man behind the idea.
It will be some experience and thanks for all the support!
I am pretty tired just after saying farewell to Ted in Arran it was an emotional weekend.
So many turned up it was amazing and makes you think. Most there had seen and done things in life and helped put so many folk over the years mainly folk they never knew in the mountains all over the world.
This trip to the USA is a huge honour and I will work hard to represent so many of you.
I see the weather is coming in this weekend and the first dumps of snow and the Artic blast is coming. I will miss that for the first time in over 50 years?
Have fun be safe and if on the hill or in life look after each other.
