What’s the haps across the pond?
A few weeks back, David, our one-man team located over in England, participated in a two-day, off-road charity bike ride on behalf of the Southdown Children’s Nursery and The Point Foundation.

While we were busy singing Happy Birthday to our nation, 60 riders (including David, himself) were riding the 100-mile course, winding through South Downs Way—that’s from Winchester to Eastbourne, all along the South Coast of England. If you’ve never been to that part of the world, just know the route involves quite a few climbs and equally as many descents (what goes up, must come down, right?).

Well, turns out all of David's training paid off. By the first rest stop on the second day, there were only two other riders in front of him. That’s two out of 60, with our David as third.

By the end, he’d worked his way past one of the riders, wrapping up the two-day ride with a strong second place finish.

Check out the race day photo. David’s on the far left, and poses proudly with the golden girl of UK athletics Sally Gunnell. Sally has a mountain of titles to be proud of including World, Olympic, European and Commonwealth champion at 400m hurdles and now classifies herself as a Clif advocate.

Speaking of Clif advocates...

Gary and Kit hopped over to England a few weeks ago to pay David a visit. While they were trekking around the streets of London, they took a detour to check in on some stores busy selling CLIF Bars.

And so...

Next time you find yourself over there across the pond, keep your eyes open for our bars and if you happen to see David, give him a pat on the back and congratulate him on his second-place finish.

Cheers (and mind the gap, too).
