Next, one of the pages where my mother recorded every call received relating to the record attempt.

Some press reports of the ride.   

The Time Trial Weekly report is mostly accurate, although it was Hedley who timed the finish. 
Some of the paragraphs from Cycling Weekly are definitely quite confused, but I'm still pleased it went in.

Not really sure where to put this, but these photos were taken from the car as we drove home.  It shows what you get as you decend into Berriedale.  Add some poor weather & extreme tiredness to get the full effect.
