A Taste Of Africa In Bedford

After receiving the Big Banana off the hairy Gorillas from Banana HQ we ventured off around the park to visit some of our less hairy friends.

Unfortunately our planned photo shoot with the animals at Woburn was slightly thwarted with the birth of a new female elephant - After 22 months of pregnancy we couldn't really complain too much. We still managed to visit the Lemurs and Meerkats and take a trip around the Great Woburn Railway before setting off on our journey to Wendover.

The First stop

The Wyvern Shipping Co. in Leighton Buzzard for our canal boat journey down the Grand Union Canal. Mike and Adam were able to enjoy the perfect weather and a leisurely cruise whilst the remaining members of the team prepared for the journey ahead.

The full team finally met up at the Grove Lock pub for a spot of lunch and then it was on to the recumbent bike and banana bike down the tow path.


A mechanical breakdown left us with just one gear on the recumbent, which was a challenge, but we battled on in the heat and made it to Wendover very late in the afternoon. Next stop Trent Park.

Many thanks to Wyvern Shipping Co and MK Motion Bike Hire.
