They did it!
Nick Bragg completed his 3,000 miles cycling across Canada in 30 days!
Starting in Montreal on 21st June 2019 Nick and his trusty bicycle travelled across 4 time zones and 6 provinces. He made his way through the mountainous terrain of the Rockies, and finally finished at the Inukshuk monument on the Vancouver waterfront - all in aid of agricultural welfare charity, The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution.
Nick and Claire have been supporting R.A.B.I through events hosted on the farm for many years, this was Nick’s most gruelling challenge yet with 16 months of planning and training. In the run up to Nick’s Cycling Challenge, they also hosted a series of other fun fundraisers, including Frogmary’s Annual Great British Beef Supper and Pig Racing Night with Crewkerne Young Farmers.
After their return, they held a Round-Up Supper with pictures and stories from Canada, plus a chance for everyone to get on their bikes at Frogmary’s Charity Bike Ride. Thank you for supporting Nick's epic mission across Canada.
We are proud to announce their grand total of £31,676.14 raised on behalf on the R.A.B.I.
