Parkinson's Fundraising Ride: Pauillac to La Livinière – tomorrow's the day

Grapes as petits pois in Pauillac this morning 

The moment of truth is now hurtling towards us – we start our ride from Pauillac to La Livinière early tomorrow morning. 

During today it was very hot but is considerably cooler tonight with a wind from the west. Hopefully it will be a little cooler tomorrow for the ride – plenty of suntan lotion is likely to be essential during this week. 

The ride tomorrow starts at Lafite on the D2 with a quick op before heading down the D2 – rote des châteaux – through Pauillac, Saint-Julien, Margaux, Macau, Bordeaux and then along the eastern side of the Garonne to Langon, where we spend our first night.  

We are delighted that our fundraising for Parkinson's Uk continues to go well. With gift aid we are now at £3583.75. Please support our fundraising here and help us to make our target of £6K. All donations will be much appreciated.
