    Bloody hell! On you go mate. :D

    I've put on about 5 stone over the last 3 years and obviously need to loose a bit of weight myself. You've just inspired me to up the miles and dig in.

    Congratulations, and well done on not taking the easy way out. I don't mean to be disrespectful or offensive, but getting out there on the bike when you were your size couldn't have been an easy thing to do. Very, very well done. You're a proper inspiration. Keep it up, and good luck in July. :D
  • Go on my son!! [cockney accent]

    Well done mate. That is awesome! Keep going!

    Good effort, good cause. Looks like a few more sponsors wouldn't go amiss though. Four so far isn't many...
