They did the ride, in extremely poor conditions, but told us that they enjoyed the extra challenges the weather threw at them, saying:
‘The rain belted down for ages, we couldn’t have been wetter, but the camaraderie of the other cyclists around us and the crowds kept us going – the experience was amazing all in all. We’ll do it again next year if the Society wants us to, and hope we might stay dry and get to ride all the Surrey Hills next time’.
Their target of £500 to help the National Trust install a drinking water fountain on Leith Hill has been achieved, but if anyone wants to donate, the JustGiving site is still open. Any further donations will be gratefully accepted, or cheques can be sent made payable to Surrey Hills Society. www.justgiving.com/thebrotherscooper
