One of Herts men is down... Stridey.

One of our men is down. The ultra-positive Herts Lotus Seven man Mike Stride ('Stridey' on Blatchat) is, at the moment, going through a big bad patch with his on-going fight against cancer and is at present at the Royal Free Hospital, Hampstead, London.

All of us of course wish him well but he’s finding life a bit boring (in the past he held the fastest motorised skateboard World record – so it will be…).

 I’m appealing to anyone who knows Mike to give him a bit of time either by visiting him on Facebook or at his bedside. East ‘B’ Wing, Floor 5. Bed 9 (double check). He’s got enough books (inc John Aston’s) & games. A bit of life-chat is all he needs.

Correction from  Stridey....!

“I wasn’t fastest motorised skateboarder, but I was World Amateur Tight Slalom Champion 2003, and got a Blue Peter Badge for teaching Helen Skelton how to race downhill!”

Cheers, Dikko, Herts Area.

Just looked at Stridey's Facebook page, he's one tough cookie! Good luck getting through whatever they need to mess with this time :)

Thanks, Dikko.

Can I just add that he's definitely up for visiting. Don't hold back, folks.

Sadly I can't find Mike on FaceAche (isn't it rubbish?) but hope to get into town, sometime soon.

I know Mike from the Ace Cafe meeting and ladt met him at Penn Sevens. Ever cheerful and very positive chap.

Got him as Michael Stride. Certainly not the man pictured when I searched for "Mike Stride".

Not met Stridey (to my knowledge!), but Blue peter badge and Seven owner - awsome!

Sending big waves of positive thoughts for victory over his current battle. Stay strong Mike and be well soon Thumb Up

All the best Stridey keep up the fight. 

Skateboarding is something that just does not compute at all with me. The last time I tried it I nearly split my head open. Same thing for snowboarding. I think I’m a pretty good skier but the board based stuff is a big no. So hats off to you

we exchanged about my son Jack who is a CGI Artist, he is coming to us in March to do the Paris marathon and raising money for Bowel Cancer UK

Stay strong sir
