So I’ve recently signed up to take part in Vegan Cycle India, a charity cycle tour of Rajasthan India in early February, 2019, all in aid of Veganuary.

This will be the longest cycle trip I’ve been on to date. We’ll be covering around 80-100km per day, starting in Agra, and heading West via transfer to Bayana where we will start the tour, travelling 410km (254 miles) across 5 days.

We’ll be using mountain bikes for the route, because although Rajasthan is relatively flat, there is likely to be different terrain throughout the tour. We’ll be travelling through agricultural fields, rural sandy tracks, National parks, and cities rich in culture and tradition.

We will finish the cycle in the vibrant capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur which is popularly known as the ‘Pink City’. I can’t wait to get out there and explore, however there is still quite a good few months of fundraising, and training ahead of me.

 I have always wanted to visit the region of Rajasthan, following a trip to Southern India two years ago, and what better excuse to return to this magical Country than for a cause that is so close to my heart.

It has been 9 months since I made the switch to a vegan diet, after signing up to the Veganuary challenge a month early in December 2017. Since then I have discovered a host of different benefits living this lifestyle, not only by the way it makes me feel, but the positive impact it is having on the world, and specifically animal cruelty. If more of us were to make that switch, the world would be a much better place to live.

It was precisely this transition that inspired me to change much of the food related content on the Art Eats blog to plant based. It was a risk in doing so, but fortunately the readers have continued to grow steadily since then, of which I am very thankful.

You can check out find my fundraising page here. The target is a whopping £1k from now until February, so any donations are most welcome.

Stay tuned for more updates on my progress over the coming months.
