Event 8 Timbo Blizz Cycle Tour
Timbo/Blizz combo is back with a Paul Green to turn company into a crowd.
‘ The Goodies ‘ will be leaving Calais on 5th July and working their way 420 miles West to arrive to arrive in time for the Tour du France finish in San Malo on the 9th at approx 15.00-if you see a 100 cycle pile up on the Tour around 14.30 have a look for Barry on the TV!!
Our boys will take a couple of days to follow the Tour and then the real challenge begins with a 9 hour drinking session on the San Malo/Portsmouth ferry-Ask Milney about that!!
Brilliant challenge again and best of luck to Paul, Barry and Timbo-anyone else interested in joining let me know and will put you in touch.
