I’m happy to say I’m a volunteer marshal for this year’s Rivers Ride! However, I am looking at the weather forecast and wondering if I’d be better off riding…! I must admit, despite the weather being awful it didn’t put me off for this year, sadly due to personal reasons I’ve decided not to ride. But I am doing my bit for the Foundation!
All the volunteers met last week to find out which jobs we’ll be doing – I’m marshaling on the Big Day Out in Cockermouth! I think it will be interesting to see the ride from a spectator’s point of view; I didn’t pay too much attention to what was happening around me last year as it was so wet we just wanted to plough on!
I’m so proud to be able to be part of the event again this year – I will wear my biggest smile and I’ll be ready on Sunday to cheer on all the riders on the Big Day Out.
My company Derwent have 3 riders this year and are trying hard to raise as much money as they can for the Foundation – it’s a joy to see!
Good luck to everyone and I’ll try and take some photos of my marshaling experience (warning: they may just be of wellies and a cup of tea…!)
