FUND raising cyclist Ian Toulson’s Kumfy Karsy Kwest has got as far as Germany.

This picture was sent in today by Alec Kemp, a former Thurston Community College pupil now living in Germany near Dusseldorf.

Bearded Ian, who is raising funds for new loos in the village hall near his home in Walsham-le-Willows, stayed with him on Friday night.

Alec said: “I am a member of an expat cycling group called the Jolly Wheelers, based just up the Rhine from Dusseldorf. We meet every Saturday morning and so were more than happy to escort Ian for the ride into Dusseldorf and then treat him to a cup of tea before we set him on his way. We even honoured him as our ‘Wheeler of the Week’ – a highly treasured accolade in Wheeler circles.”

Ian, 66, set off last week and plans to cycle up the Rhine to Lake Constance, then down the Danube to Budapest before crossing Slovakia to pick up the Vistula in Poland. He will follow the Vistula to Gdansk then cycle back along the coast to Esbjerg for the ferry back to Harwich.
