This is why Timmy Mallett is cycling through Blackpool today

PEOPLE on the Lancashire coast might catch a glimpse of legendary TV presenter, Timmy Mallett, today as he continues his cycling and painting tour of the country.

Timmy, best known for presenting children’s programs Wacaday and The Wide Awake Club, today cycles between Southport and Blackpool and encouraged locals to say hello if they see him.

However, this is not a random visit to the county and is part of his new challenge where he attempts to cover 4,000 miles around most of the UK coast.

Timmy, who makes and sells paintings on his art website, Malletts Pallette, also tries to paint one picture a day on a 100-day trip.

Taking to Twitter, he encouraged locals to watch him and say hello if he is spotted.

It shouldn’t be difficult as Timmy, 66, is known for his bold and striking clothes and will wear colorful clothes and ride a multicolored bike.

He said: “I’m cycling on the coast. You can’t miss me, there’s a bit of color.

“Say hello, get a sticker! Meet me in Lancashire today between Southport and Blackpool.

Commenting on his post, one person said, “Hats off to you. The only way I could do that is if I had an e-bike.

Another said: “Making great strides, what an adventure.”

“Now things are getting a bit colder, darker and more Nordic,” said a third.
