Carol inglis reports:

‘It was an extremely eventful weekend for our intrepid Wheeler Dealers.  They had to ride through heavy downpours and unexpectedly deep puddles.

Kevin took some great photos, and I believe he got engaged to one of the sheep that kept getting into his pictures.  They were glad when they reached the hotel that night, and under protest, had a few bevvies to keep out the chill.  The next day was better and they reached Tynemouth without mishap.  A fantastic achievement by all, and special thanks to Scott, Rob and Keith for supporting them’.
