Coast to coast in a day!

This story dates back to 29th June 2013 but never the less is still a blog worthy story! All in aid of beagle welfare.  

Rob Gregory (a member of our R & D department) took on an iconic route cycled by hundreds of people every year (Usually takes 4 to 5 days but Rob completed in just 1 DAY!)

Map of route


This includes 150 mile road ride from Western lake district, through the Yorkshire dales, across the flat vale of York and finally the Northern Valleys of the North York moors, Finishing by the sea in Whitby.



Rob in action


Rob was raising money for  a charity very close to heart which is the Beagle Trust. Rob and his wife Jenny own 2 beagles, Jack (age 3 and half years) and Banjo (age 2 and half years).

Rob raised a total of £350.00 for The beagle welfare. The beagle welfare scheme was established in 1979 in order to give help and advice on beagles and where necessary to re-home beagles whose owners are unable to do so.

Main Aims of the charity can be found on the website :

So after all of Robs blood, sweat and tears during the 10 and half hour event he relaxed back at his B&B with a beer.

Well Done Rob!
