We were moved and inspired by the story of Geoff Collins’ last ride with WNBR London. It speaks so strongly to our themes of body image, healthy lifestyle, good attitude and cycling. But most of all, it is a story of strength, determination and bravery.
Geoff was treated for bowel cancer and had a stoma fitted. He immediately fought back to regain his health and fitness. He had been a keen cyclist and was quickly back in the saddle. To demonstrate that having a stoma is OK and to show the world that he and not his stoma was in charge of his life, he rode with WNBR London in June 2018.
Sadly, cancer caught up with Geoff and he died in October 2018.
