Hi All,

A little update from me about what I’ve been up to…. Except I can’t ever remember so I have to check the photos on my iphone (that’s slightly worrying isn’t it?)…

Ah yes. Here we are. Lots to report. Some worky stuff, lots not;

A brilliant cycle ride when we took over the marathon route and cycled it in super fast speed. It did require a 5AM start, but it was a really fun morning. Dave Baum made this great little film of it (here)

Life at AMHQ continues as usual. Emma’s mum made the most delicious lemon drizzle cake (or was it maderia, who cares, it was great).

Mayo finished the carry case for the samples before she flew off to Japan for her holls. She made it from tweed which Rosie got from her hometown up north. (Penrith I think, isn’t that the town in Withnail and I?). I’ll be the best accessorized Brit on my trip to Japan in June. Thanks Mayo! And thanks Rosie!

Us hard core cyclists did the South Croydon Loop last week-end. About 40 miles, proper countryside so lovely, but bloody freezing! And I’m starting to get annoyed by London’s potholed roads. Up at 6, back for breakfast (why do we do it?) In the photo; Den, Lloyd, Susie, Robin and Jeremy. Robin and Susie were by far the fittest.

Us lot in somewhere south of Croydon!

Then we voted (great British democracy at work)

Then it was Susie's birthday so more cake (yum)

Then we cycled the Suffolk Sunrise 100. A lovely 100k ride in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. It was absolutely brilliant. I loved it (except Denise had a crash and was amulanced off!). The second half we really pushed it, very fast indeed and really fun. I did a little film (very bad but my first attempt) to try to sum it up. Alex Suffolk Sunrise 100 - the movie!

I think Susie is putting together some new photos of our posh Goldcrest collection for the web-site. It’s all looking amazing. Really exciting! And lots more to come!

OK. That’s it from me. Must try and make Bike No. 3 for our charity cycle. The others are going really well. I love the Auction thing. Check out the web-site if you haven't already. It’s great fun to see what’s going on and who’s bidding etc.

Do think about making a donation to our charity.... it's really important research to prevent blindness,

Thanks.

Back soon!

Alex
