Cycle to Saratov: April update

Posted on Monday, April 18th, 2011

This month, our teams have reached the halfway point, the two markers on the map becoming one, as their paths cross. Once again taking to their bikes, our volunteers have sped around Wiltshire and burnt away calories in the gym.

The aim is to cycle the same distance as Great Bustard chicks must travel in order to be released onto Salisbury Plain, all the way from Saratov oblast in Russia to the plains of Salisbury. The route is being cycled in two different directions: David Waters, GBG Director is heading east and The GBG team is cycling west from Saratov. The money raised will go towards buying a new four wheel drive vehicle – an essential item for the release site on Salisbury Plain.

This month featured our Easter meet-up, which propelled both teams forward and would also have seen them meet up in Poland.

Can you help us better these totals? We’re looking for both cyclists and donations, all of which can be arranged at JustGiving.com on our fundraising page.

No donation is too small, every penny you give helps the Great Bustard Group in re-introducing the Great Bustard back to the UK.

All donations have Gift Aid applied, meaning we receive more money than you donate because the tax is given back!
