When my other half suggested he wanted to cycle to Rome, I said, I'll come! Before I knew it we were in training for the challenge of a life time! My wonderful brother in law, Robert Cutting sadly passed away 5 years ago this Summer. He had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. A healthy, happy family man, it shook us all. With the help of The Rosemary Foundation, Robert's last few days were spent at home, a home he loved that had been at the heart of our family for many years. Weddings, Christenings, Christmases had all taken place there and it was where he felt safe, surrounded by his loved ones.I know that as I push myself up those Alps I will hear Robert, cheering me on and saying, Come on Jay, I know you can do it. He would love to have been able toget on a bike every morning and face a new road through France or Italy. He will be with me every rotation of my wheels.
