    He said that he got his date's wrong so that was why he is in France and not watching the bike race live, Ellie,

    His back home tomorrow, just as well we have saved some weather for him.

    Yes, he is keeping well.

    Love Terry

    Oh that's nice to hear Terry - is he keeping well?

    He's gone all wimpish if the weather sent him off to France - not a true Yorkshire man then

    Love Chimp.

    I touched base with John yesterday, as there was a bike race in his area,

    But he could not brave the weather here and is in France. Flying back this week.

    He sends his regards to people who he knows on the forum. I did update him with goings on.

    Love Terry

    I do have a soft spot for John;

    He was willing to travel and actually help others and did help Dave move and set their house up. Such a generous man.

    Good on you John, love Terry

    John's reply;

    Hi Terry,
    Pleased to hear from you. The name had me struggling for a while. I have moved doors but the Tour will be passing Saturday. Cav left his bid for victory too late as he did in 2012 Olympics and again on TDF into Harrogate when he ended up crashing out.
    A Yorkshire man won today which was brilliant. Didn’t watch it all but just the last 35kms. Brilliant breakaway but the peloton mistimed their dash for the line or found the going tough because of strong headwinds.
    Not taking in many of our hills Saturday but back this way Sunday and passing near to Sir Gary Verity’s home. Few more hills on that run and comes through Middleham which is only a couple of miles away. I will be there rattling a tin for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance on the day. Hope you are still enjoying yourself and entertaining the troops on the MNDA website. Not logged in for a longtime. Is CC still about? Give her my good wishes. Sorry we fell out when someone was being unpleasant to her. Presumably her friend is no longer with us. CC found her denial and faith in quack doctors incredible but I can understand how she wished to hang onto a slim slice of hope.

    Take care.
    John

    And later after I replied saying something like It's easy to fall out with people on the forum, most people are in a very bad place so it don't take much to trigger something off.

    I'll post some of your reply if that's OK. Cc's friend is still alive, I don't know how.

    John said;

    By all means quote as much or as little as you like. I know what you mean about us all being in a bad place, both patients and carers. Maybe Cc's friend didn’t have als. Although I do think survival rates are better in the USA because the medical professionals are more likely to carry out tracheotomy procedures. The main reason being that in America the patient is an income stream whereas in the UK the patient is a drain on NHS resources. Excuse my cynicism.

    Regards to anyone who remembers me.

    I've just emailed John, just to wind him up a bit, LOL;

    Hi John, I see they've rolled out the old hasbeen again and he might ride past your front door in the "Tour of Yorkshire".

    Hope Cav does well.

    Love Terry

    Enjoy the day.

    Love Terry

    My husband Martin was diagnosed in February and was/is a keen cyclist. We have been going to see the Tour De France for the past fifteen years in the alps, Mt Ventoux and Paris.
    Martin has ridden many of the alpine climbs.
    We are going to Cardiff to see the final stage of The Tour Of Britain and after a quick e-mailto the organisers they have kindly offered us free hospitality at the finish area, including lunch and more importantly a free bar. Thumbs up to them.

    Yep, was there, got good position on a corner with a good view in both directions. Half of good beer in my hand and a bus stop to shelter under when needed.

    But I was on TV in the adverts.

    Such is life.

    Love Terry

    Hi Terry,

    They finished in my town on Wednesday and it was a great spectacle however the streets were gridlocked as they were closed to traffic however I got there on my scooter.

    I had the same thoughts as CC. Should have gone to Costa.

    Enjoy yourself Terry

    Hopefully there will be no rain showers to rain on your parade, if there is it can’t be as bad as what’s heading for Florida and hoping won’t be coming my way as well…

    Maybe Grandad would prefer Costa instead of a McDonald’s Egg McMuffin ??? I don’t know about in your country, but in mine I don’t believe those are real eggs in their eggs ?? LOL

    I hope to see a little of The Tour of Britain if the weather is reasonable.

    I will be standing up in my wheelchair at Tuddenham at about 2 pm

    My granddad will be picking me up at 10 am and we are going to a nearby water park for a cooked breakfast that has good reviews. It's my turn to pay so I told him it was a Mac donnalds burger breakfast.

    Chances of heavy rain showers???????????

    Love Terry

    Hi Terry,
    Mark was the last man over the line. Didn't make the time really but because he was part of a group of about 40 they didn't want to send them all home which was there only choice or move the goal posts. Hope he can cope with the next stage which is going to be a lot more demanding. He has the second highest number of stage wins of any competitor. Would be good if he could make it to first.

    I just watched it John;

    Froome unbelievable, I was only surprised that he didn't gain more time. Mark made it with five minutes to spare. It's nice to see sky doing things differently, I don't think there old riding out the front all day is the best use of manpower.

    Love Terry

    And another Terry, Chris Froome with a yellow jersey and stage win. Mark Cavendish could be out if he doesn't make the cut. Will be in the green jersey if he does. Adam Yates in the white jersey. Not bad so far for Britain. 3 out of 4 jerseys and 5 out of 8 stage wins.
