Mentally preparing for the race: L-R, Tom Danaher, Michelle Sullivan, Paul, Berndatte Mattison, John Nash & Simon "sealion" Renwick (reclining)
Just sizing up Simon, ready for his...
See my fingers sinking into that "washboard" stomach!
Lycra is not my best look...

On the road, Lap1 - Heart rate off the clock.
He hears the strange shouts from above...
And realises it's his family come to watch.

Jo & Jun up in the DLR station - Shade and a View, the spectator's dream ticket.
The Dad from above.
Chica, in her "Colonel Kurtz" hat.
Lap 3, putting on a show for the folks.

Mum, impersonating a lollipop lady, with the blow-up freebies from the London Tour de France prologue.
Ahh the Gatorade of completion tastes sweet!
The Clan Wixon, Jo, Mum, Mark, Paul and Dad
Jun trying to escape.
Jun, looking a little like his brownie's been spiked.
Paul, looking like a moron.
