Paul and Paul get on their bikes for charity

Two familiar faces will be getting on their bikes next month in order to help raise money for charity.

SCCC Bars Manager, Paul Cooper and SCCC Deputy Safety Officer, Paul Cox will be taking part in a special cycling challenge in support of Anthony Nolan.

The pair will be taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 on August 4th.

The route celebrates the legacy for cycling that was created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It begins starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved. The event then finishes on The Mall in central London shortly before 150 professional cyclists race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route.

Ahead of the ride, Paul Cox explains why they are raising money for their chosen charity. “We want to support Anthony Nolan because a colleague of ours received a lot of support from them a few years ago,” he said. “The event itself will be great because the route will be stunning. It will certainly be special when we pull up outside Buckingham Palace.”

Paul Cooper said: “Anthony Nolan is a cause that is close to our hearts and the chance to cycle the Olympic route was too good an opportunity to turn down.”
