Organisations / websites who refused to link to us or help us promote / market the ride. Seriously. I asked them all to exchange links or advertise our site (idea) in a newsletter or just pass on to anyone they thought might have been interested. They all point-blank refused or couldn’t be bothered to reply to an email! And people wonder why Wales is still a poor country…
