Cycling for the bears

Supporters Laititia and Davide left their home town in Switzerland no less than three years ago to begin an amazing bike-riding expedition. So far they have covered 18,000 kms and are just about to enter China for the next 2,000kms of their incredible journey.

While in China, this fabulous couple will be raising money and awareness about our work to end bear bile farming. They have set a target of £2,000 - £1 for each gruelling kilometre.

The weather in southern China is baking hot just now and they'll need all the support we can give as they cycle over such challenging terrain. Please click here for more on these two super-heroes, including how you can sponsor them on

A huge thank you Laititia and Davide, take good care of those aching limbs, and please pop in and say hello if you're cycling near our sanctuary in Chengdu!
