Farmers Weekly team gets ready for sponsored bike ride

Farmers Weekly is entering a team of cyclists into this year’s London to Brighton Bike Ride in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Known as the Farmers Weekly Wheelers, they will set off from Clapham Common in London on Sunday 21 June and aim to arrive several hours and 54 miles later in Brighton.

“Last year we raised around £2,000 for a great cause,” said team captain and machinery editor David Cousins. “This year we hope to outdo that.”

“The Wheelers need all the support we can get,” added online editor Julian Gairdner. “FWi users can make a donation, no matter how small, on line. Each of us has a Just Giving fundraising page and we’ll total them up to reveal the full amount raised after the event.”
