After the North West Audio Show, we were on the ferry back to Hifi Pig Towers when we met a group of people who are cycling their way to Rio in time for the Olympics. This epic journey is being made to raise money for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, which supports children’s and cancer charities, and the ride is led by Jane’s husband Mike. We thought this was a very worthy cause to support so do please have a look at their website and Just Giving page and see if you can help them to smash their target!
