Halewood's Cycling Scouser has had an eventful week! In last week’s update we mentioned that Rogo had been joined by his friend Justin who would be finishing the challenge with him, unfortunately just a day in, Justin had a bad fall on his bike and injured his arm, he was unable to carry on and once again Rogo was a lone rider!
Rogo battled on his own throughout last week with some storms and windy conditions not dampening his spirit. He’s stayed at some less than desirable motels on his travels and in one even had his hoodie stolen after washing it and leaving it outside!
He finally made it to the JLR dealership a few days ago in Cleveland who gave him a hearty breakfast and fuelled him for another 90 miles on the saddle – for him to only then hit another storm!
The good news is though he has finally made it to the state of New York!! The plan is to finish in New Jersey at JLR HQ around lunchtime on Friday then cycle into Manhattan to officially finish the ride in Times Square. But he’s still a few hundred miles left yet!
Let’s make it a big finish for him, please donate below…
