I suppose you are wondering why is Mike Phillips pedalling a bike for two days to cover 200 Kms.
Well it?s really quite simple, my Dad died of cancer and his dad - my Grandad - did as well so ... I don't like cancer. (Think Boomtime Rats and Bob Geldorf.)
Supporting me and the ride will raise much needed funds for basic and translational research that is already making great progress with much more to come.
But wait - there's more - it will be fun because I will have to train for months and months and months, and its winter with wild storms and cold rain, and I'll probably fall off a lot and be bruised, and I might even get bitten by a fierce dog.
What was really helpful was when a good friend said "You'll never do it!".
