Tracey and I would like to thank Martin Forde the Managing Director of DHL Express Gibraltar for supporting Ride to the Rock.
As we progressed through Spain we were forced to alter our plans. The intense heat and challenging terrain meant we had to plan more frequent rest days (every 4th day or so) than we originally allowed. This ate away at our time for travelling home and we had to replan. Getting bikes onto trains looked like it was going to be problematic – disassembling and reassembling was going to be a royal pain.
We asked if DHL would be able to help us get our bikes home and Martin immediately offered to do this as a donation to the project. This is a remarkably kind thing to do, especially bearing in mind we didn’t even get to meet him.
Thank you so much Martin and all at DHL who are taking our precious bikes back home. We will see them soon.
