We did it! On 16th September 2019, Philip and I, we rode an SS1000 for the Veritable Poppy Project. The aim of the project is and was to install a ceramic poppy at every war grave in the Municipality of Gennep. This project is run by Bianca, my better half! We did it, by the end of October they were all sponsored, thank you all who supported this great cause!
During our ride, we rode to the grave of John McCrae, to put one ceramic poppy at his grave. Then we more or less followed the route of Operation Market Garden. We stopped at Valkenswaard War Cemetery to light a candle at the Ccross of Sacrifice.
(SS1000 = 1000 miles in 24 hours.)
