On 3rd June amputee Phil Bousfield will be cycling 58miles along the North Wales coast, he has organised this event himself in aid of the Limbless Association. His Daughters Ellie (aged 10) and Faye (aged 8) will be cycling the last 20 miles with him.
Phil was one of the UK's first wheelchair boxers and has
also played for the Welsh wheelchair rugby team, so sport is certainly no
stranger to him. However he hasn't had much experience on the bike since
becoming an amputee but is well underway with his training on a bike that was
donated to him by West End Cycle in Llandudno.
Starting at 9am Saturday 3rd June, the 58mile cycle route is
between Shotton and Llandudno and there is currently a group of around 20
adults and children taking part. When Phil and the others cross the finish line
Cambria Band will be performing.
Phil has organised this event himself in aid of the Limbless
Association, however Phil is keen for those that have provided him with support
are recognised as he 'couldn't have done it without them'. From the communities
in Sychdyn and Buckley to his friends and family.
Phil would also like to thank all those who have sponsored
him, including Will’s Shop in Caerwys, RPM Bikes in Buckley, JTB Carpets in
Buckley, NEWCIS in Mold, the Buckley Ju Jitsu Club and the fishing tackle shop
