When Smudger met Zola

Posted by on 31/10/2013

In case you’re not already aware, during my cycle across Brazil I’ll be raising money for two charities, one of which is Watford FC’s Community Sports and Education Trust.  So thanks to Andrea and Mark at Watford FC I was invited along to today’s open training session at Vicarage Road to meet Gianfranco and the boys for a few photos with me and my bike!  And yes, I cycled there from London, my first proper ride on the new bike and it was great.

The pics below are from my own camera but there were also some more taken by the club photographer which will be used to publish info about my cycle on the club and CSE Trust websites, plus hopefully also in the Watford Observer, I’ll post links when I have them.  The PR/awareness campaign is go…
