OT - Charity Cycle Ride

The editors have kindly given me permission to post this here. As some members of the august body of London Irish Supporters are aware I had the misfortune of suffering from an illness which caused great disruption to my life, physical/mental health and the loss of my employment.

As part of my recovery I started building my fitness by taking up cycling. I'm now keen to "pay something back" after the wonderful support I had from family and my many friends including those at London Irish.

Anyone who saw me wheezing about for the Flatulent Fairies at FB7s or Touch will be astonished to hear I'm now in a place where I am able to propel myself from Kent to Ypres* in aid of Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI). RBLI provides employment, support and care to the Armed Forces Community and those disadvantaged by disability, a health condition or social welfare need.

If anyone is able and willing to contribute to this cause donations can be made on my JustGiving page. This isn't a "pay for Foggy to have a holiday" request, there was a commercial entry fee for the challenge!

Thanks for reading, have a good summer, and here's to our last season in Reading & being back in the Premiership!

We did it! Many thanks to all London Irish supporters who have backed me over the course of a difficult couple of years in general and for this challenge in particular (Sm125)

Thanks, all. It was a wonderful experience & best of all a goodly sum raised for the charity. Still buzzing about it, no doubt I'll be boring those who know me about the trip at the beginning of the season!

Some videos of the routes here. My tracker playing up on day one so entire course not captured.


Day One - Aylesford-Dover


Day Two - Calais-Ypres



Faugh-a-Ballagh!
