Hello and Welcome from Nigel Murray
Big Battlefield Bike Ride 2013
Big Battlefield Bike Ride 2013To all my kind supporters and sponsors
We finished! Despite the mileages reported in the press, 294 of us, including 50 wounded, cycled 425 miles from Paris to London over 5 cycling days finishing with a tremendous reception in London yesterday. At Blackheath we were joined by 1300 other cyclists who had cycled from all parts of the country for the biggest cycle ride ever into London.
We had a team from The Sun (newspaper) with us and their reports are better than anything I can produce, so here are the links:
If you have 15 mins to spare (and I encourage you to do this), please have a look at the daily videos of the ride which give you a much better feeling of what we did than words can ever describe. http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/news/our-latest-news/index.html (and scroll down).
Nigel the Skydiver!Many people have very kindly made a donation to Help for Heroes. My part of the bargain was to jump out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane. I did this on 1 December - from 15,000 feet and it was the most amazing experience. Thoroughly enjoyable, and once I got over the interesting part of actually departing the plane (looking down it seemed quite high!) it was a great experience - 45 seconds free-fall at 140 miles an hour then about 8 minutes with the parachute. Beautiful view of my house and Salisbury Plain on a lovely (albeit chilly) day.
A link to a 5 minute the video of the jump is at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdJdJcoYKts
About Help for Heroes
What is H4H all about? It's about the blokes, our men and women of the Armed Forces. It's about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It's about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. It's about Ben, it's about Steven and Andy and Mark, it's about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes.
Please note, the Bmycharity website will be closing on 31st December 2015.
