Crewe Alex Goalie Steve Phillips set off on his 500 mile charity cycle ride today!
For the last year Steve has embarked on an ambition to raise £20,000 to be shared between two local charities which are Caudwell Children, the other is Leukemia & Lymphoma Research.
Lots of people have been behind Steve helping in the fundraising efforts and there has been quite a few events in both Crewe and Nantwich organised by Steve and chums in aid of the two causes.
The time came for Steve to make his journey to London in the morning to start his charity ride and The Crewe News were down there to wave him off.
Steve left from the Crewe Alexandra stadium at around 10.30am and is currently driving down to London to start his fundraiser tomorrow.
Steve spoke live from the Crewe Alex stadium speaking on BBC Radio Stoke before he left Crewe for his charitable journey.
If you would like to donate to the causes he has two just giving pages set up for each charity that you can find below.
Good Luck Steve!
