Message from Matthew’s mum on Thursday 6th November “Well it’s really started! Matthew has had a full day with team rickshaw preparing and planning, it’s really becoming clear the amount of planning, people and effort it’s going to take. It’s a 5:30 breakfast followed by leaving at 6:30. The rickshaw leaves the start line at 7:20 with Matthew riding 3rd tomorrow morning. He’s excited but nervous.”
