On Sunday 23 June, cyclists on the Suffolk Climate Change Partnership (SCCP) 2013 Bike Ride raised valuable funds for World Land Trust's Buy an Acre fund to help extend the Barba Azul Nature Reserve in Bolivia. The reserve protects one of the world's most threatened habitats - savanna grassland habitat, which is vitally important for the endemic and critically endangered Blue-throated Macaw.
The ride took in several towns and villages including Dunwich, Snape and Framlingham. The Froize Inn at Chillesford kindly provided a delicious lunch for the team.
Dan Bradbury, Head of Digital Communications at World Land Trust (WLT), was one of the cyclists. "I agreed to take part as I'm a keen cyclist and I thought this would be a great event," said Dan. "Cycling 59 miles in the beautiful Suffolk countryside and raising money for an extremely important project in Bolivia? Sounds like a great combination to me."
In early June, prior to the bike ride, SCCP organised an evening bicycle maintenance session for participants.
