Gerry McCann not on his bike after all!

Post by Guest on 27.07.11 12:49

Just before the publication of KM's book, there was talk of GM doing a bike ride from Portugal to UK. I seem to recall it was put back because of the book and the Royal Wedding etc etc. Will have to find the article. Anyway this on their facebook page in response to a question about it.

Official Find Madeleine Campaign

Regarding the question yesterday about Gerry doing a bike ride from Portugal to England. There is no plan to do a charity bike ride at this time.


never mind

That's a shame because at some point for him to get from Portugal to the UK he would have to cycle into the ocean.

And there's a good chance he may find Madeleine in there.

But, still, why do a charity bike ride which would use a lot of energy when you can just hold your hand out and get people to put money into it.

Kerching!

Here's an article that mentions this marathon bike ride.................


KATE MCCANN’S EMOTIONAL BATTLE TO FINISH MADELEINE TRIBUTE

Monday March 28 2011 by Tracey Kandohla and David Pilditch

HEARTBROKEN Kate McCann has been overwhelmed with emotion writing a book about her daughter Madeleine’s disappearance, friends revealed last night.

Kate is now close to finishing the deeply-personal account of her nightmare, which she hopes will raise millions of pounds for the dwindling fund set up to find her daughter.

Any money will pay for private detectives to continue the search for Madeleine, who went missing at the age of three in May 2007, during a family holiday in Portugal.

Last night a close friend said: “At times it has been heartbreaking for Kate.

“Not surprisingly, there have been many tears. But Kate has been strong and carried on for Madeleine’s sake.”

Kate, 42, a doctor from Rothley, Leicestershire, has been using extracts from her personal diary written in the days after Madeleine vanished.

She has also been relying on family and close friends to help jog her memory.

The friend told how Kate had been overwhelmed with emotion at times as she re-read the chapters.

But she insisted she had to carry on to help her desperate fight.

The friend said: “She is adamant it will be her very own account – written in her words – and has turned down offers by her publishers of a ghost writer.”

Kate has been helped by her husband Gerry and close friend Fiona Payne, who was also on the ill-fated holiday in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz.

The book was originally due to be published on April 28 – just before the fourth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance.


But publishers Transworld postponed the release date by a fortnight because it would clash with the “media frenzy” surrounding the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29.

Heart consultant Gerry, 42, has also postponed his own money-raising event – cycling from Portugal to England – because of the royal wedding.

Kate’s book, simply entitled “Madeleine”, will now be published on May 12. That is the day of Madeleine’s eighth birthday, underlining the book’s central message that her parents are convinced she is still alive.

The couple, who have five-year-old twins Sean and Amelie, have publicly told of their fear that lack of cash could make it impossible for them to continue searching for their daughter.

[b]Gerry’s marathon fund-raising cycle ride from Portugal to England has been put back until the summer.

Gerry and three friends were due to begin the gruelling 2,000-mile journey from Praia da Luz to Rothley on May 3

A family source said last night: “Gerry is disappointed because he was looking forward to the challenge to continue raising awareness and funds.”

Wasn't there also talk last year of a bike ride through Mexico from one coast to the other in this year??

I would encourage Gerry to do that. Gives him a change to feel how it is to disappear without a trace.

Obviously Facebook Webmaster is not being kept fully apprised of developments. Wading through the carp on their page I get the impression that a few people are managing to sneak through with apparently innocent questions relating to ways to support the Fund.

I don't imagine he has the time for bike riding, travelling around the world flogging their truthful book, embellishing and adding new details to the night Madeleine disappeared and probably dragging his flipchart to CR to show them the list of people, websites etc he wants Carter Rucked next.

I hate ask, but since I am severely allergic for that site (I get red spots all over and in front of my eyes big grin ) would you be able to treat us on some?

Just for your delectation and delight, lj, here is a particularly elegant little poem which featured yesterday:

as night fills the sky tonight,

we all pray with our plight.

dreams of safe return,

as our candles stay alight and burn.

as the stars shine way up high,

we take a time and sigh.

another day with no news of yet,

a date for a perty that can't be set.

well wait and pray,

for this great day.xx



Plus a great review of the Australian programme posted on Monday:

Hey Excellent interview given by the McCanns on Australia's "SUNDAY" programme 2 nights ago!! Let's all pray it may help 2 bring their gorgeous girl home SOON!!! Two things they said contributed 2 the tear I wiped from my left eye....that they know whatever problems Madeleine has when she comes home they can take care of!! There's NOTHING they wont do 2 "fix it!!" Nothing would be 2 big or unsolvable!! Secondly, THEY'LL NEVER GIVE UP ON MADELEINE, NEVER!!! ~ BAD things DO happen 2 GOOD PEEPS!! Praying!! xo



You couldn't make it up, but these two did! Would bring you more, but don't have the sick bag handy at the moment.
