GAFT 2018

Event Schedule

Formal Launch:

  • The event was officialy launched at the BCFTA Dinner 9th November

 Starting point:

  • The formal start will take place at the GAFTA dinner on Tuesday 19th June 2018 (bike to be ridden out of the dinner subject to approval of the venue)
  • The relay proper will start the day after the GAFTA dinner from Westminster with a send-off by the person at the time holding responsibility for farming and agriculture!

Route:

  • The plan is that each leg of the relay is approximately 100 miles (this is an achievable target as a number of riders will cover each leg)
  • Because some locations to be visited will be close together and others will be some distance apart sharing of the route between riders/teams will need to take place.
  • The route will cover the principal Agricultural Supply Trade sites in the UK and can be downloaded on the home page
