London-Paris & London-Amsterdam MECHANICS/GUIDES NEEDED June 2013

Hi guys,

I posted this in the charity cycle group but thought this may be a better way of reaching you. I'm organising two cycle rides next year in June for two different charities. I've got a lot of friends who want to come along but two of our mechanics have dropped out. Is there anyone who would be interested in helping out?

Although it's for charity we can certainly look at some kind of remuneration package for your time along with free accommodation/food etc.

Let me know if you're interested.

Cheers

Paul

I'm very interested, would work free, but need to discuss expenses including airfare to/from New York. email me c/o the Chain-L site to discuss open a dialogue.

Ah rubbish, I really need to find a London or Paris/Amsterdam based mechanic - we can't really afford to cover the airfare from the US. If you know of anyone I'd really appreciate it if you forwarded them my email address paul@chooseachallenge.com.

Many thanks

Paul
