What a contrast to Stage 7! Not only did the sunshine go in but the rain well and truly came down! Conditions were awful really – made even more dangerous because it was the first mountain stage, not only with serious climbing but serious descending too – very tricky and tough.

I’m a mixed media visual artist working in Leicestershire in the UK. I trained in Fine Art using different media including oils and acrylics, but my recent work reflects my love of drawn media, especially pen, ink, watercolour and pastels. My theme is movement – My subjects are varied from landscape, animals, musicians, dancers and sport, especially cycling. The unifying feature of all these subjects is that they are constantly changing – there is movement and energy everywhere.
