Our First Recruit

I am delighted that Felix Schmid, a long standing friend and colleague has decided to take the plunge and join me on my minor “epic”. We have talked about LEJOG for a while but as it now becomes a reality I have someone to do the miles with. We will be accompanied for some of the time by Felix’s brother Thomas (a famous Swiss cyclist) and Felix’ wife Bridget (nee Eickoff who is a very well respected senior engineer working for the Railway Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) in London.

This great news as Felix has supported the Railway Children in a variety of ways before, including as a marshal on the 3 Peaks Event, in the company of his wife Bridget. Felix is an accomplished mountaineer (well he should be as he is Swiss after all!) and cyclist (in fact he is a “test pilot” for Brompton!).
