Tonight Grace made her final pre pedalothon outing, appearing on the BBC regional radio and tv news programmes. You can keep up with her epic journey by following @gracetheswan (BBCs Katherine and Adam)
Steve and Jeff brought her over from Leeds, and myself, Simon and John launched into Dukes Dock. She looked great all stickered up for Sport Relief. Mick and Mark (clever chaps in Leeds) had fashioned a pump just incase she might take on water during the journey. Its a marvellous device, and worked well when we tested it back at the ranch.
