All 13 challenges are now complete
And here’s some highlights of our major feat

Our challenge began back in April this year
The Ronde van Calderdale gave no reason to cheer
Hill climbs and cobbles to name but a few
Not meant for a tandem but we showed “we can do”

Pedal for pounds round Yorkshire we were sent
Nights in Hull, Scarborough and Harrogate we spent
Hotels improved throughout our stay
With a five star restaurant on the final day

The Examiner Challenge after this was a breeze
As we cycled with enthusiasts and passed them with ease
Astonished they were at our pedalling prowess
Inviting us to join them as regular guests

The three masts of Huddersfield we wanted to do
45 miles and the captain needs the loo..
The hills are good training for what we do next
And at every big mast we could stop and do texts

Coast to Coast was the toughest of all
Tandem in sea was not a bad call
Punctures and chain breaks tested our limits
But a long Gin and Tonic soon lifted our spirits

Carry on Camping now that was a giggle
A sunny afternoon with Holme Moss in the middle
Met by pear cider and money well spent
Jennifer sets fire to the back of the tent

Then came a time trial with mentor Mr Stringer
Only 10 miles this was surely a winner
Followed by breakfast in a nice little caf
This was so easy we really could laugh

The Rhubarb Triangle was next on the list
Via Rothwell then Morley then Wakefield we did twist
Lost in Wakefield that was a laugh
Map reading skills caused a bit of a gaff

Now for something different we chose to ride
A seven seater bike which you simply couldn’t hide
A bike with no gears and a passion for hills
This really was a ride made of thrills

A day at the seaside and Scarborough was just right
85 miles and not a hill in sight
We set off at 7 with a few stops for a wee
And still we surprised all by arriving for 3

The Cragg Vale climb of the Tour de France
Seemed a bit daunting but at the same time a chance
A five mile climb on a tandem in December
Was a morning neither of us care to remember

Now we were approached with a special request
Launching a bike for the disabled was simply the best
We paraded around Town and went knocking on doors
On a bright orange bike and what a good cause

Finally we celebrate in the way we know best
A ride from one local to the other I don’t jest
By now it’s the Saturday before Christmas you see
And that’s where both Jennifer and I like to be.
