Story

TOFTigers is a unique initiative to protect tigers and their natural forest habitat across India. We are joining a is 180 kms off road bike ride between two tiger reserves - Pench and Kanha - in Central India in late November to raise money for ongoing conservation work in the area, particularly the Village Guardian Scheme. Your donations will help to support the local people and farmers who are trained and paid to be the ‘eyes and ears’ on the ground, monitoring tiger movement and illegal poaching. We will be meeting the guardians and hopefully spotting some of the tigers - ideally from a distance as we are not that fast on our bikes! We are really looking forward to the challenge and your support would be very much appreciated.

    We made it! After an amazing 180k cycling through tiger reserves and Indian villages we reached our destination where we were greeted by Tara the elephant - which was probably better than being greeted by Shivani the tiger who was then seen from the safety of our jeeps the next day!! The cylinder was pretty challenging at times but it was such an eye-opener to visit an area where tourism is still barely in evidence and to realise that a little goes a very long way so we want to thank you again for your donations!!! Will try to post some pics. x

    Following a weekend in hospital with Adam having surgery on his broken jaw - rugby! - we have decided to go ahead with the trip. Training has therefore been a little sketchy to be honest but we are excited about meeting the reservation guardians who we are raising funds for and seeing the tigers (from a safe distance!)
