Practical Action

As our motivation to do this trip has come from wanting a personal challenge and to experience all the world has to offer, we feel it would be insincere of us to say that we are doing this for charity. That said, there is a charity which we feel does invaluable work and who we strongly believe in and therefore as part of trip we would like to raise the profile of Practical Action.

Practical Action is a charity that sets out to use technology to challenge poverty and more often than not, it is the simplest ideas that have the biggest impact.  A great example of simple technology is the bicycle.  It is such a simple form of transport – yet it is life changing to millions around the world and in our case is capable of taking us around it.   If our trip has inspired you and you would like to make a donation to a charity working at the grassroots of poverty, please follow our Just Giving link here:

    St Mary’s Church, Brixton, near Plymouth, are right behind you – well, more like 10,000 miles ahead of you as you enter China!. We love hearing your news through Granny and Grandad Pryce and have been giving our support to Practical Action. Keep on peddling!
