Parkinson's grand cru fundraising ride: we crossed the finishing line

Riders and our helper with Fergus Henderson:
Jim, Lynda, Fergus, Carole and Max

Soon after 11am this morning we completed our fundraising ride for Parkinson's UK when we arrived at Ostal Cazes in La Livinière, Minervois. Although we actually started at Lafite, we rode past the entrance to Lynch Bages as well as the Hotel Cordeillan-Bages on our way out of Pauillac on Monday, so we essentially rode from Cazes to Cazes.

We set off a little after 9am from La Cité of Carcassonne. After a short ride on the busy main road from Carcassonne to Thébes, we enjoyed quiet roads through the Minervois passing by Laure-Minervois.

The fundraising total continues to rise – we are close to £5000 with gift and have crossed the £4K mark without the aid. Current total is £4075.00 and £4843.75 if you include gift aid. We are very grateful to our 98 donors! We are still aiming to reach £6000.
