Nick Bragg of Frogmary Green Farm welcomed guests to his home to celebrate his successful Canadian cycle challenge.
This summer, Nick cycled 3,000 miles across Canada in just 30 days and raised around £30,000. Nick and wife Claire hosted a party to celebrate the achievement, where they revealed never before seen photos from the adventure. Nick spoke to guests about balancing farming, fitness and the importance of wellbeing, as well as letting them in on some unheard stories from his time in Canada.
R.A.B.I chairman Malcolm Thomas and trustee John Hoskin attended the event with South West regional manager Pam Wills. Pam said: “Seeing photos of Nick’s amazing challenge really brought home what an incredible achievement it was. Both Nick and Claire are so generous with their time and support. Their enthusiasm is infectious!”
Visitors tucked into a sausage and mash meal, provided by local suppliers. They also had the chance to win in the raffle, with prizes including a Fendt pedal tractor and a family ticket to Crealy Park in Devon.
The party was followed the next day by Nick’s final ride out, where he invited supporters to join him on a tour of the local area. Cyclists had the choice of one of two routes – a longer 83km ride or a shorter 27km trip. Both routes explored the South Petherton area.
At the end of the ride, guests returned to Frogmary Green Farm for a hog roast with entertainment from band the IOUs.
