A very important few words
Updated: Aug 23, 2018
As Heidi wrote last night, this amazing journey could not have been achieved without the support and love of many, many people and I would like to add my heartfelt thanks to all of you.
Of course, there was one person that she didn't mention: Heidi herself.
Without Heidi, Izzy's Grand Tour would never have happened. Throughout the summer, and in the months leading up to this challenge, Heidi has ridden, driven and walked miles and miles, always ready with drinks, snacks, an encouraging word, a hug and a smile. She would often drive ahead of us, get on her bike, ride down to meet us and then ride with us back to the car for lunch or a pit-stop. Her energy, positivity and care was second to none. She has driven over 3,000 miles this summer and she has always been there to meet us - often instinctively knowing when and where the best time for a stop would be, and arriving with the most wonderful array of drinks and snacks: perfect for flagging minds and bodies. The fact that the whole ride went so smoothly was very much down to the day-to-day planning and organisation that Heidi undertook, alongside the love and fun that she brought to the ride.
Thank you darling...without you none of this would have been possible: you are the most wonderful wife and mother, and we all love you.
