RSPB

We are inspiring the UK to give nature a home

Story

Yes - it's true!  We have set ourselves the challenge of completing the entire Tour de France route this summer, riding each Stage the day before the professionals.  It's something we've both always wanted to do, and with the Tour starting in the UK this year, (Leeds), and with two British contenders for the Title, (no, not us...), this is the year to do it.

We both have experience of long-distance cycling, but this is by far the biggest challenge we have ever taken on. Now our combined ages exceed a century it's high time we got on our bikes and did it. 

Our aim is to finish the 2100 mile course in less than twice the time it will take the pros. 

We are long-time supporters of the RSPB, whose new campaign message, 'Give Nature a Home', sums up what we endeavour to achieve on our organic farm in West Dorset.
