The "Big Lads Big One" will begin on the 31st of May at Tower Bridge in the big smoke of London.  We will then be using our skinny little legs, plenty of will power and energy from cakes and scones to power up the country to our home town of Newcastle Upon Tyne.  All being well we will finish in the shadow of the Tyne Bridge on the 2nd of June feeling fresh!

The 'athletic' team of 'endurance athletes' is made up of;

*Martyn 'Dukey 2k13' Earle

*Richard 'DDD/Pecs' Elsdon

*David 'Davey Mack' McKenzie

*Martyn 'Prof Lange' Simpson

We are hoping to raise as much as we can for Cancer Research UK so please if you can donate a few quid and that will spur us on to get a wriggle on and blast up to toon for Sunday lunch/dinner/supper!!!
