Money coming in for Flying Banana
July 7, 2010
Adrian believes strongly in the work that FRAME does so chose it as one of four charities to benefit from his tough trip.
He has never been a keen sportsman but began a campaign of improving his general health as he approached his 50th birthday. As part of that plan he bought a bike and gradually developed the idea of a long distance ride, with the encouragement of his children.
Just 8 months later he set out on a solo, self-funded, unassisted cycle ride, the length of the UK, of over 1000 miles, riding an average 70-75 miles a day, through some of the hilliest parts of the UK. He has dubbed himself the "Flying Banana".
He said: "The charity adopts a realistic measured approach to persuading researchers and scientists that there are genuine alternatives to medical experiments worthy of examination. FRAME's objectives are in tune with my view of the world in which species should co-exist naturally rather than be exploited in non-natural ways."
Although Adrian's trip is completed you can still support him by donating at his JustGiving page: http://www.justgiving.com/flyingbananaframe
