Chris Davies and Richard Cheney completed a 270 mile cycle ride from Fishguard in West Wales to Smithfield Market in London.
Chris, who works for farming magazine Agri Trader, took up cycling as an alternative to walking after injuring his knee. He and close friend Richard came up with the idea of cycling from Fishguard to Smithfield Market along a route roughly based on the old Drovers road from Wales to London, which has been an important part of the local agricultural heritage.
The pair completed their journey in just two days. They stopped by R.A.B.I’s office in Oxford on the way and met with Stephen Noble, Head of Fundraising and Development. So far, the pair have raised over £1,500 through their efforts.
Chris said: “We wanted to support R.A.B.I because of it’s crucial work with struggling farmers. Demand for their help is on the increase and any donation will be hugely appreciated and wisely used.”
