Cycling epic gets underway

Good luck to adventurer Paul Lockyer whose extreme cycling challenge, the Haute Route Dolomites, starts today with a gentle parade around Venice.
Happy House cyclists
The parade, for tourists and publicity,  will take riders across the only road bridge into Venice, and is a prelude to  the tough days ahead - with the  first of the seven-day mountain stage marathon starting tomorrow morning.
Paul, whose sisters, Hebe and Imogen sponsor Happy House twins, James and Jonathan,  has put in months of training for Haute Route Dolomites, a  900km timed bike race covering over 17 mountain passes and 19000 metres, from Venice to Geneva.
And his motivation is  to bring in vitally needed funds for Happy House.
Paul says:"Heartfelt thanks to everyone who has made a donation to the Children of Watamu.
 You’ve helped raise more than £2,000 in less than two weeks with more coming in every day - an amazing sum of money!"
We would like to add our thanks to Paul for making this epic effort and to all those who are supporting him, and our family, with their generous donations.
Safe travel, Paul.
