Road to Seville cyclists in northern Spain


The Road to Seville cyclists have arrived in Spain, left Bilbao on the northern coast and are currently experiencing their taste of the Spanish mountains.  Fortunately, they brought the Glasgow weather with them, but today is what all the hard months of training was all about.

Last month we spoke to Peter Ledwidge, who as you will see from the video below, has been enjoying the life in Spain for some years.  Here he explains why despite living so far from Celtic Park, supporting the Foundation is an important part of his life.

Supporting Celtic is easy these days, but the club only exists because of the need to help those in hardship.  You can do your bit to support the cyclists reach their target by donating here.  Thank you.

  1. As B78 mentioned there are literally thousands of seats available for the big Glasgow Derby, Oldfirm fc v celtic.



    I wonder if they will once again promote it as such “the old firm”, they use this name at every opportunity.



    all their deluded bloggers, grown men reporting from their experiences of the game, on a selfis stick, all serious , what sad lifes they must have.



    Any celtic supporters buying a ticket, you would need to be off your head, they are out for blood, and i seriously worry about the safety of our players.



    What a blessed relief it is to say @the result really doesnt matter”, if they win it is like hampden 1994 3-0 game,



    it hardly gets you bragging right to say ah but we beat you once, you dont get a medal for it.

  2. One positive for the bears,



    with the club deck half empty there is a chance for them to purchase their fathers debenture seats for life and take the grandweans up to see what could have been theirs ………..



    but dad, granda billy told me that seat was mines forever , how come i cant sit there every week ……….



    em um, eh, well, some bad men came and took the name plaques away.

  3. has there been a news black out and a government alarm warnng that i have missed, where is everybody ?

  4. Just noted the blog is so quiet. Maybe everyone is trying to buy tickets for the club deck for a good laugh tomorrow.

  5. It was funny to see bears encouraging other bears to buy and take a friend along to the game.



    They don’t do irony either lol.

    Any stool injury reports ?






    bbc reporting it as a penalty to rangers


    “Do I think it should happen? To be honest with the rivalry I can’t imagine them doing that for us. I don’t know but I can’t imagine it has happened, so I would probably suggest it wouldn’t.”







    You got one thing correct. We can’t imagine your lot ever winning the league.

  11. very very funny thread on Todd Cantpleywell.



    He now has the cutesy nickname of “Todders”



    I mean you would be mortified wouldnt you.



    what a term of endearment that is.



    lanky streak of blonde show pony mince

  12. Adi I can report that there is no injuries Stevie Austin is safe and well.



    D :)

  13. The wee bits I`ve seen of Cantwell he looks like a decent player but a horrible person.

  14. Every friday I apply for a job, not because I want another, but just to see why other companies reject me.



    I am more likely to retire soon than keep on working.



    I just applied for this, lets see how i get on.



    Given I have two business related degrees, I am feeling there is something not quite truthful about how they describe their history and operations

  20. Evening all.



    Just enjoyed a cracking afternoon with the ‘Shiprecks’



    A parcel of rogues I tell ye. :)



    This YouTube clip was spoken about earlier today, IMHO, very funny.

    Evening all.



    Re new signings …



    I hope we concentrate our efforts on three or four strong first team contenders.

  22. Back to Basics - Glass Half Full on

    Am feeling strangely indifferent towards tomorrow.



    Not normal.



    In unrelated news … I watched “1917” last night.



    Would strongly recommend it.



    Compelling and harrowing in equal measure.



    I know we live in a multi cultural society with a mix of views of the world …



    And I accept I have some level of cultural bias ….



    …. but I’d make this movie mandatory viewing for all those flag-shagging, armed forces day junkies our Bhoys are playing in front of tomorrow.
