Thanks so much to Steve and Sarah, at the Aztec Yoga Centre Ravadinovo, near Sozopol for their kind offer of help accommodation, and massage. Am happy to do a crash course in massage for those tired legs Sarah.
I know that this Charity has touched so many peoples lives and I'm humbled by your generosity.
Thanks so much

Urgent appeal by organizers for expats near Malko Tarnavo

Postby stevo1954 » Wed Jul 07, 2010 4:48 pm

Hi There,
I have just had the following email from the organizer as follows :-

If you don't mind I have another problem that you may be able to advise me on. We're currently having a few issues with our support vehicles, meaning that we can now not take our support car (and possibly van) over the Turkish border to Istanbul. SO......... we're having a bit of a panic. One solution is that we leave the vehicles somewhere near the Turkish border in Bulgaria (near Malko Tarnavo) and reunite with them when the riders recross into Bulgaria. My concern is finding somwhere safe and secure near to Malko Tarnavo to leave the vehicles. Do you have any contacts in this area at all?
Thanks again for all your help.
Kind regards,
Steve
can anyone help urgently please ?

Hi

It looks like the team will be staying with us for a night.

Wish me luck trying to feed and look after 15 or so tired young men and ladies.

I think I'm looking forward to it????!!!

Please give them your support.

Still not sure of their exact route to our place but as soon as I have it confirmed I will let you all know.

BYW Martin we've sold your room to the ITV crew so it looks like a camp bed for you

Good Luck to everyone today on the bike ride

Postby stevo1954 » Wed Jul 28, 2010 3:22 am

To echo Steve and all of the above, Good Luck with your leg today to Ravadinovo where a very vocal and 'bedecked' reception awaits ! Ok well I have a loud voice, a whistle and Union Jack flags.
God Speed to Leeds for Julie Howland, my Sister who died of Cancer a year ago tomorrow, when the riders set off from Ravadinovo, and was from Morley in Leeds, where The Tomlinson family lived, I think.
PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY
I am donating an original watercolour painting for auction back in Leeds.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE RIDERS massages, good food and drink and the pool await those weary limbs today.

According to one of Jane's sons interviewed on their arrival back in Leeds the highlight of his tour was in Hungary and Bulgaria where "the people were so kind".
