Abbeville to Beauvais
Day three set off from a very French gymnasium where our cyclists used a variety of techniques to warm up for today’s cycle...dancing, football, and of course our expert resident physios. Even Geoff Thomas was spied chipping a ball, the first time in public since he hung up his boots, he skied it, thankfully his cycling is going brilliantly!
Day 3 also saw Dom Goggins, founder of the Leading Light Campaign, join the event to ride alongside his pal Graham, they are both riding in memory of Graham’s son, Steven.
After a hard day cycling, the riders were treated to a heroes welcome in Beauvais, with an appearance from dignitaries at the Town Hall where Geoff Thomas was presented with a Beauvais Medal of Honour.
Our last words for today will go to Dom - “If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far, go together.” African proverb.
