Have a good one and thanks to others

As followers of this blog will be aware, regardless of conditions, routes etc, I hand over the blog to all our service men and women at this time of year.

As Fellow presenter ( Lawrence Dallaglio )  of the recent Millies Awards stated:
"Sports stars are often put on a pedestal of being heroes of our country but actually, the true heroes are our troops. When you cross the white line as a sportsman you put your reputation on the line. But when you cross the white line as a service person, you put your life on the line and that is inherently different"
In honour of all , I have posted the list of the full winners of the recent Millies Awards
