'LET US GO FORWARD TOGETHER - AND REDISCOVER THE GLORY OF GREAT BRITISH FOOD AND DRINK'.
It’s a nationwide campaign aimed at getting people back in touch with the great British food that’s on their doorsteps throughout the land.
The cycle ride will create a ‘food-chain’ through Great Britain.
Eccentric foodie Tim Keates, tweed-clad and moustachioed, will pick up & drop off delectable samples of Great British food to Great British people as he pedals on his merry way through these islands.
But of course, foreign guests are more than welcome at the celebration! We are proud, not ashamed, to share our national cuisine! – or should that be ‘national kitchen’?
So, organic butchers, artisan bakers and box-scheme makers - you are all invited to take part.
The Great British Food Cycle will champion food heroes like you from North to South.
How to get involved!
There are four ways to get involved:
- You can be a cyclist along the route. Join us for an hour, a delivery or as long as you like?
- Be a Producer or Consumer, let us know where we pick up and where we drop off?
- Donator to the charity we are supporting. Thrive – Using gardening to change lives.
- Assist during the event, & make it a success.
