Another friend of the webmaster has just completed his JOGLE ride at the age of 73!

Former international athlete Roy Lodge from Stratford-upon-Avon rode the 900 miles in just 13 days, averaging 69 miles per day and with 89.5 hours on the bike - quite an achievement.

His wife Gina supported him in a car - and even that wasn't without incident as the suspension collapsed on the way to the start and a hire car had to be found for a few days - undaunted Roy set off from JOG thinking it was all downhill .... his brief story is No 585 in the Journals.

Long-time cyclist Roy clearly enjoyed the ride, raising even more money for the Parkinson's UK charity.
