“Clyde’s Trail is great fun and his different outfits are fantastic. I've walked, jogged, got on buses and took the subway as I’ve made my way around the trail. I’ve had complete strangers, of all ages and nationalities, happily take my photo with Clyde – and when they asked me what it was for, I was only too happy to tell them and encouraged them to follow Clyde’s Trail themselves. I really can’t wait for the Games to start, I think I might implode with excitement!”
