Air Ambulance Charity ride

David Bell Presents Cheque to Northumberland Air AmbulanceCoast to Coast cycle ride

The Saturday after Knockhill,  my brother in law Kyle Deswert and I, did the Coast to Coast cycle ride, the plan was to do it in a day and we set off from a very dark Whitehaven at 1:20 am and finished at Sunderland at 5:20 pm absolutely knackered, but over the moon to do it in 16 hours.

We thought it would take longer, but we completed the course, assisted by Stephen Graham driving the back-up van, and raised a decent amount of money for the Great North Air Ambulance along the way.

When NEMCRC vice-chairman Mick Anderson heard about the ride he decided a contribution was necessary and went round Croft on club race weekend collecting with a bucket.

Mick collected over £200 toward the fund and I presented a cheque for £ 2050.00 to the Air Ambulance in August (see photo)
