Whilst Tony Wells is away from his base, I have been advised that Phil Leigh
has abandoned his record attempt at the Forth Road Bridge after covering 572
The information I received is that, since being soaked by the
torrential rainstorm at Bristol, he had been suffering from
‘saddle-soreness’ and for many miles had been unable to sit down. When he
stopped he was more than three hours behind his schedule.
His H/Q are planning to put a recorded message on their enquiry number
01524263037, which may give more information.
