So the Brighton Capel Monster was ridden successfully by 95% of those who entered at the weekend, despite the blazing heat and heavy weight of the ludicrous amounts of cake in Capel bearing down upon contestants.
Highlights included 12 year old Barney completing the course with his dad Ben, the wonderful ladies of Capel Methodist Church putting on enough food to feed an army and our friend Phil coming all the way over from Canada to ride.
Also a special mention has to go to endurance athletes George and Vic, who were volunteering at the start having just completed one of the worlds hardest endurance races in Ireland. After mooching about a bit they decided to rent incredibly slow and heavy Brighton Bikes for a laugh, yet still managed to complete the blimming thing! Beers kindly donated by the Farr brewery brought the event to a chilled out finish by the beach.
The whole mood of the day was brilliant and the level of fundraising has gone up to over £13,000! The implementation of the Treehouse Project gets ever closer with the support of people like you. A massive, heartfelt thankyou has to go to Helen Kellar, Stuart Wilson and all the staff at Rayment Cycles for doing the organising. Cheers! :)
