Tomorrow, Phil Bowers will be embarking on his epic challenge to cycle all the way to Rome, in aid of CCAA and Arthritis Research.
Phil is starting his journey tomorrow morning in Bath because it is famous for its healing spa waters and is also the location of the world-renowned Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases.
Bath was a jewel in the crown of the Roman empire and so it he plans to end his journey in Rome which also has a number of restorative thermal springs. Phil also has a damaged hip from arthritis so he has set modest targets for the distances he cycles each day and plans to reach Rome on 12 October 2017 on World Arthritis day!
Our committee member Charlie will be joining Phil tomorrow for the first few miles of his start, we will be live with Phil tomorrow morning! Please join us to wish him all the best on his amazing challenge.
