Ride Of The Lions 2015

May 13, 2015

Social Media is great, I know some people still like to throw a pigeon out of a window to deliver messages, but honestly the world has moved on!

Having been Twitting, Tweetering, Tottering and as some have pointed out Twatting around with the website, Facebook and Twitter pages for a good while now, I noticed a Tweet for The Ride Of The Lions requiring mechanics to assist them on the Waterloo 200 charity ride.

I let our resident CyTech qualified mechanic Steve C know, and within a blink of an eye he’d bagged himself a place in one of the support vehicles. Well done that man for seizing the opportunity to be part of something great, with some BIG names from the sport of Rugby who aren’t ashamed to don lycra.

Well a week passed and the organiser was still on the lookout for helpers. So I threw my hat in the ring, and whad’ya know, I am also assisting in a support vehicle.

We’ll be proudly helping out assisting with minor mechanical mishaps on route, but, I’d like to point out that I refuse point blank to rub down Martin Johnson’s legs.

I don’t care how big he is!
