Yesterday was the Torbay Motor Club’s (TMC) 2011 Torbay Classic Car Trial event. 90 motorcycles and car’s took part which fortunately didn’t require the services of the Devon Air Ambulance this year ( See my following blogpost on the 2010 event.) – although at one stage we thought it might be needed but more of that later.

Gareth Roulston and 4 friends are cycling the Great British End-to-End, or as it’s also known, LEJOG (Lands End to John O’Groats) in April 2010. You may have heard about this particular challenge when David Walliams, Davina and Co completed the challenge for Sport Relief last year, although they did it as a relay rather than cycling the complete journey. Gareth and his team will all be cycling every metre of the 1000 Miles over 10 days and raising funds for Cancer Research UK and the Scleroderma Society in the process. So why am I telling you this?
