at 3pm about 25 riders met nick in clevedon across from the pier for one last round of tea, coffee and cake before the big ride into bristol. the bikes wer a mix of tour de france technology and the oldest of school.
when i got to howies bristol shop there was just under 100 friends and family waiting to cheer him home and then a group of people who had joined the fray to see what was going to happen. Over 10 had made the trip over from Cardigan.
then he rounded the victoria rooms and rolled into queens road to clapping and cheers.
then hugs, kisses, smiles, tears, tea, cakes, beer, music, conversation, stories and pictures of the journey.
and then at 10.30 a very tired nick drove himself home, and his bike rested the night in store.
what a great night
