Disabled servicemen and women charity cycle ride.
 
Hi everyone.

Today I had such a humbling experience where I met 15 UK and 15 USA servicemen and women who are cycling around the east of England.
These service personnel are all injured in conflict and are either amputees, spinal or brain damaged.
It was really a remarkable experience to meet them and hear about their ride. I met a school-friend who lost a leg in an explosion in Northern Ireland, a USAF sergeant who lost a leg in Iraq and an Army private who lost his arms in Iraq.
Their bravery is quite unique and is one of those experiences in my term as Deputy Mayor I shall not forget.
I'm telling as many people as I can, about it.

David
