Meet Phil Bell, one of the cyclists taking on the London to Paris cycle ride, in aid of the NSPCC.
On 8th September, a team of Westcoast employees will be taking part in a huge challenge - cycling from London to Paris, raising money for the NSPCC. Visit the JustGiving page below.
Let's start off by finding out a bit more about you ..
This is my 2nd big event in 3 years. 3 years ago I kayaked the length of the Thames, so that’s water and road covered so I guess the next will be air!
Why did you decide to get involved with this challenge?
The NSPCC highlighted a bunch of events that Westcoast staff could get involved with and the cycle to Paris really caught my eye. I love the challenging nature of it and also that it provides the ability to spend time with teammates.
How is your training going? Do you have any updates?
It's hard, sore and deflating when you can't catch Daryll! He's definitely the leader of the Peloton, as he's the fastest member of our team by far!
We're planning on cycling 100km this weekend, so would appreciate any support we can get!
What have you raised so far and what you plan to raise?
We want £8K as a team and are just over £6K with the amazing fund matching that Westcoast has done.
