As many of you know, a “few mad lb’rs” (myself included) recently completed 1000 + mile ride in less than 24hrs, all in aide of both The Royal British Legion and LAA.
The role of honour for that event can be found here; http://www.ironbuttuk.org/saddlesore.html Page down to the SaddleSore 1000 list. The names of those that completed it, all 166 of us are listed in alphabetical order by Christian name.

As a foot note, 187 riders started.
21 Did not finish; of that,
11 were to slow - arrived back at the start/finish point over 24hrs
6 Had mechanical failures
2 Suffered a flatty
1 Involved in a minor collision
From a personal point of view, I think all 187 are winners, simply for attempting this ride. At the end of it one of the staff asked me;
“Did you enjoy it?” YES!
“Would you do it again?” Oh Yes!!
Would the “few” name themselves below please.
